Players Abroad

Patosi, making a first League start for Lokeren since April, netted twice in the 5-2 victory over Charleroi.

“Two goals, that was for you Senzo Meyiwa, It's sad to lose you my captain,” Patosi wrote on his Facebook page after the game.

The attacking midfielder, who celebrates his 22nd birthday tomorrow, will now hope his well-documented battles with weight are behind him after shedding the kilograms in recent weeks and making peace with coach Peter Maes, who had been critical of his off-field attitude.

Andile Jali also started for KV Oostende as they thumped Westerlo 4-0 to end a poor run of results.

Darren Keet, likely to replace Meyiwa in the national team for the short-term at least until the return of Itumeleng Khune having been his understudy in the first two of Shakes Mashaba’s squads, was on the losing side as Kortrijk went down 3-2 to league leaders Anderlecht.

Anele Ngcongca featured on Tuesday night as Genk brushed aside Lierse 3-0.

In Netherlands, Kanohelo Mokotjo played for FC Twente as they squeezed past Go Ahead Eagles in a penalty shoot-out after the teams had played to a 0-0 draw in the Dutch Cup.
