Match report: Ajax Cape Town draw with Moroka Swallows

Posted: 13 February 2013 Time: 22:23

Moroka Swallows came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw with Ajax Cape Town at Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday night.

The game got off to a fast-paced start, although both sides looked somewhat rusty after the mid-season break.

After 10 minutes the visiting team had a chance, when Bennett Chenene burst into the Ajax box, but his shot flew across the face of goal.

New signing Mabuthi Khenyeza then came close to scoring for the home side with a powerful effort, but he was denied by a superb Greg Etafia save.

10 minutes before the break Abia Nale got his first chance in Ajax colours, winning the ball in the Swallows box, only to see his shot rebound off the near post.

The Birds then had a good opportunity when a corner fell to Rudi Isaacs, who struck his volley with some venom, but Sean Roberts was up to the task, making an excellent block.

It was the Urban Warriors who drew first blood when left-back Musa Lebusa slid the ball in from close range after Khama Billiat’s cross flew across the goalmouth.

Action came thick and fast after the break, and Swallows came close when Chenene attempted to get on the end of Lefa Tsutsulupa’s chip over the defence, but couldn’t quite reach the ball.

Several opportunities followed for the Cape Town side: Billiat shot wide, Cecil Lolo missed at the far post, and then Khenyeza was denied by Etafia after yet another good cross from Billiat.

The Birds levelled the game with 20 minutes to go, thanks to Siyabonga Nomvete’s well-taken strike into the far side of the goal.

The latter stages of the game remained entertaining and action-packed, with the best chance falling to Dikgang Mabalane, who turned the ball wide of a near open goal after Roberts had done well to keep out a header.

Once and Always until Zebra like DA acknowledge that Pirate like ANC will rule until Jesus comes back. Chiefs benefited from Apartheid football administration of Abdul Bamjee and that time is long gone. it’s sad that some chiefs supporters are still living on the past dream.
