Moroka Swallows and Mamelodi Sundowns draw

Posted: 24 February 2012 Time: 21:57

Moroka Swallows and Mamelodi Sundowns drew 2-2 in a League clash in Dobsonville on Friday night.

Both sides found themselves having to fight back from a deficit, and in the end a draw was probably a fair result, though the Brazilians will be disappointed at having missed out on the chance to move six points clear at the top of the table.

‘Downs dominated proceedings early on and forced two good saves from Greg Etafia – in the second minute he smothered the ball at the feet of Nyasha Mushekiw and a quarter hour later he tipped a long range shot from Hlompho Kekana over the crossbar.

However, Swallows soon worked their way into the game and began to create chances, the first of which saw Joseph Makhanya shoot wide of the target after a defence-splitting pass from Lefa Tsutsulupa on 19 minutes. A minute later Makhanya provided a clever low pass from the right that allowed Bennett Chenene to turn the ball home from close range and put the Birds 1-0 up.

On 22 minutes Swallows had a chance to extend their lead but David Mathebula opted for a difficult pass when he should have shot, allowing the opportunity to slip away. Sundowns went on to boss the remainder of the first half and were able to force an equaliser just before the interval.

On the stroke of half time Anthony Laffor provided a searching cross from the right flank. Lebohang Mokoena won a knock-down at the far post and Nyasha Mushekwi reacted quicker than Etafia and defender Ashraf Hendricks, beating the two Swallows players to the ball and heading home to make it 1-1.

Mushekwi very nearly put the Brazilians in the lead four minutes after the restart, unleashing a fiercely-hit drive that forced Etafia into another excellent reaction save. However, there was nothing the goalkeeper could do to stop Teko Modise making it 2-1 to the visitors on 57 minutes after he provided a side-footed finish from Kekana’s great through ball.

Yet Sundowns’ were pegged back just a minute later when Makhanya scored his first goal for the Birds, arriving late at the far post to crash home Chenene’s cross from the left by-line and make it 2-2 before the hour mark.

Sundowns looked the likelier scorers in the remainder of the match, especially through the ever-dangerous Mushekwi, who forced another good stop from Etafia from a headed effort on 83 minutes, but the match ended all square and the teams shared the points.
