Moroka Swallows beat Bidvest Wits

Posted: 4 April 2012 Time: 21:28

An own-goal by Mbulelo Mabizela and strikes from David Mathebula and Bennett Chenene helped Moroka Swallows to a 3-0 win over Bidvest Wits at the Dobsonville Stadium on Wednesday night.

Before the supporters had even settled down into their seats, the Birds found the opening goal of the match; Mabizela scoring past his own keeper from six yards out.

Swallows were in confident mood and they made it 2-0 in the fourth minute. Lerato Chabangu crossed in from the right side of penalty area and Mathebula scored with a right-footed shot into the bottom corner.

The Clever Boys seemingly had no answers for Swallows’ early lead and the 15th minute they resorted to shooting from distance when Sibusiso Vilakazi drilled in a right-footed shot from over 35 yards out, but his effort was saved by Greg Etafia.

Swallows soon increased their advantaged and effectively shut the match. Chabangu was once again the provider from the right when he set up Chenene, and the left winger’s shot into the top-left corner made it 3-0 after just 22 minutes.

Ten minutes after the break Swallows captain Lefa Tsutsulupa unleashed a right-footed shot 20 yards from the right side but it went over the bar.

The Birds had the match under control but weren’t resting on their laurels and two minutes later Chabangu had a right-footed attempt from 30-yards out, but it was saved by Emille Baron.

In the 76th minute, Wits had a chance to at least get a consolation goal when Swallows defender Luvhengo Mungomeni was adjudged to have fouled Bradley Ritson in the box; but Etafia saved Sibusiso Vilakazi’s effort.

The match eventually finished with the Birds deservedly winning the contest by 3-0.

The gods have really turned on De Sa! the wheel is really turning on you baba! You had a quality player in Haskins who could not only score but create goals as well. He has proved his class now that he has been given game time again and why in the world you did not field him still boggles the mind! Disgraceful loss! and you thought that some players are too old and discounted experience? sies man!
