Moroka Swallows beat Mamelodi Sundowns in the Telkom Knockout Cup

Posted: 22 October 2011 Time: 21:59

Moroka Swallows beat Mamelodi Sundowns 3-0 in the Telkom Knockout Cup at Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday night.

The Swallows goals were scored by Lefa Tsutsulupa, Lerato Chabangu and Siyabonga Nomvete.

The win came on the back of three goalkeeper errors from Sundowns’ Calvin Marlin, recalled to the side for this match after having played just one competitive match in the past 12 months.

Sundowns had the first chance of the game as the excellent Greg Etafia saved at the feet of Katlego Mphela as the visitors began the match the brighter of the two sides.

The home team might have been ahead on 29 minutes, though, as Chabangu’s free-kick flashed across the Sundowns goal, with none of the three Swallows players on hand able to get a decisive touch to turn the ball into the back of the net.

The Birds were ahead on 37 minutes though as Tsutsulupa collected the ball on his chest, allowed it to drop and hit a powerful shot on the volley. It was straight at Marlin, but the keeper seemed slow to react and the ball squirmed under his body and into the net.

Elias Pelembe might have leveled for Down when he found himself one-on-one with Etafia, but the Nigerian saved. The keeper lost sight of the ball though and Pelembe stabbed the rebound goalwards, only to see his trickling effort cleared off the line.

Hlompho Kekana then wasted an excellent effort to draw Sundowns level when he fired wide from close range, and the visitors were made to pay after another calamitous goal.

The corner was floated to the back post, Marlin came for it but was beaten in the flight and Chabangu provided a neat finish that served as a reminder of his quality.

And it was 3-0 when substitute Oscar Machapa shot straight at Marlin, the goalkeeper spilled the ball and Nomvete was on hand to react quickest to the loose ball and net his fifth goal in four games.

This was an expected result.... If kung fuu fc won that would have been a big upset... But i was shocked by the comments made by Lindani, boy how can the underdog be a favourite...... Football 101 was mastered at the University of Orlando.

Is Mwanjali better than Xulu?I don't see why Mwanjali should be a captain & also be played infront of natural central defenders.Brutal truth be told,Sundowns is not far from Chiefs in comparison.Very disappointing.

Soccer raises emotions so my emotions are stirred. How can this coach experiment in a game of this calibre, a cup of competition. I still insist that Khumalo is far more better Juice/Punch. Who always drifts unnecessarily. Marlin, Mwanjale, Teko & Moriri were rusty than Rusty Theron. We have nothing to lose, Zwane must be introduced to the game as he is gifted and still has future. I really miss Pattison. This team has indeed turned us to a laughing stock of our rivals and that is justifiable considering our dismal peformance.

If The Lord agrees we are going to be successful, when the Swallows supporters sing that song, the opponents develops goose bums. Inkosi uma ivuma thina sophumela. Up the Birds Don't follow me, follow the Birds. Someone said during the week 'bazobulala othekwane babadle nezinsiba' he he baphi!!!!
