PSL Absa Premiership: Moroka Swallows vs Platinum Stars

Posted: 6 December 2014 Time: 20:02

Ndumiso Mabena scored a superb early goal as Platinum Stars defeated 10-man Moroka Swallows 1-0 at Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday night.

Mabena’s strike moved Dikwena out of the bottom two and compounded the misery for Swallows, who had Tsietsi Mahoa sent off on 11 minutes for a disgraceful two-footed lunge on Vuyo Mere.
 
Mere was stretchered off afterwards, the only sour note on an otherwise satisfactory evening for Stars, who were deserved winners in the end.
 
The match kicked off 15 minutes late after dangerous lightning conditions around the ground kept the players in the changerooms.
 
Stars were soon in the lead though as Mabena curled an excellent effort from the edge of the area into the top corner of the net to score his sixth goal of the season.
 
Eleazar Rodgers should have made it 2-0 when he found himself one-on-one with Greg Etafia in the home goal, while Swallows’ best attempt of the first half was a free-kick from Lerato Chabangu that flashed over the bar.
 
Chabangu then forced a fine save out of Stars goalkeeper Kabelo Dambe with a snap-shot from the edge of the area that was beaten away by the Botswana international.  
 
Siyabonga Nomvete came close to steering his header into the far corner of the net from a Chabangu corner, about as close as Swallows came in the remainder of the game.

This is not working swallows must get a quality coach so that he can be able to buy new quality players this coming window period because what is happening now its a disgrace the management must get Mushin now before its too late and keep Madida as an assistant and we must get read of some of the dead hood players I never saw what Wana did yesterday he was just giving balls away we don't need such players but because our CEO is sturborn he wont listen and he also like cheap labour this team is going nowhere.
