Moroka Swallows thump Black Leopards

Posted: 4 May 2012 Time: 22:04

Moroka Swallows jumped to second place with a 5-2 win over Black Leopards on Friday night, and Siyabonga Nomvete moved closer to the top-scorer's award.

The Birds are now on 50 points, two behind log leaders Orlando Pirates with two matches to play.

Swallows, the formerly dormant Soweto giants, have lost just four matches in the league, the fewest of any team.

All seven goals – including three braces – came in a frenetic last 33 minutes after scores were deadlocked at 0-0 at the halftime interval.

Georgi Nergadze scored the opening goal with a header in the 57th minute, after which the floodgates opened.

Nomvete, Mpho Maleka and Kingston Nkatha all came away with braces.

'Bhele' now has 18 goals this season, and should get to the 20-goal mark if he keeps his form up.

Maleka came off the bench to add two of his own, before Nkatha found two consolation goals in the last five minutes of play.

Gordon Igesund's men have lost just four matches this season – the lowest number of losses in the League.

Leopards did well to keep the visitors at bay in the first half, and Lerato Chabangu and Nomvete had half-chances.

Lidoda Duvha's best chance of the half came from Tiyani Mabunda, who had a shot tipped over the crossbar by Greg Etafia just under half an hour in.

But the hosts ran out of steam in the second half, and as tensions ran high coach Vladislav Heric and technical advisor Sunday Chidzambwa looked to be in tactical disagreement.

Leopards have three matches in hand, but are in trouble in 14th place with 24 points, just one above Santos.

At least Nomvete is showing these layz strikers how to do it at his age. Maybe they will catch a wake up.
Swallows put more challeng to log leaders.

Aow, suddenly Swai Swai have so many fans in this blog since yesterday...or are they these PSL prostitutes?

Anyway, people forget one thing that Swallows is no different to Flops, SSU and ZZ. They are a team good for no.2 hence all of them continue to battle for the runners up position while we cruise to the second league title running.
Swona Champ!

Maara zebra fans are really fools...now that Swallows is on no.2 spot on the log...suddenly they're supporting & believing that they'll win the coveted PSL championship.

To all zebras out there...just save your breaths for now, cause you'll get more heartaches & headaches because of your stupidity in thinking that the Mighty Bucs won't defend their precious PSL Championship.

U said i dont c Pirates winning the League

My question is what do you see, did u see that Pirates is the only team without a home loss
Did u see that Pirates is the only team with 15 Psl wins
Did u see that Pirates are the holders of all Psl trophies
Did u see that Pirates is only team linked with Legends like Ruud Guilit n Lothar Mathuis
Did u see the updated log standings
Did u see how we dont play in less than half full stadiums...
Did you see that Pirates has players like Fredi Ljumberg liked to them

But most importantly did u see that Football 101 was Doctrinated at the University of Orlando.

Akukho league yawinwa izinyoni (fools) la. Imali iya emalini. Survived relegation nw gunning for the league. They wanted top 8, they are in top 8 so target met, case closed. If they play PMB away on their last game, they playing with their feelings ask Ajax last season. I repeat akukho league yawinwa zinyoni la period.

Well done Swayi Swayi. Nawe Nomvethe, show the clueless young strickers how it's done. Reach the 20 goal mark as we have not witnessed it for seasons on end. The lig is for BUCS, we are not moving from the summit. Swallows / Owls will only smell it. So near yet so far. Sea Robbers On The Rampage!!!

Congra Swayi Sway1 !!!You're now above the overrated, overpaid Chokers FC, the Sunclowns of K@k-Kop. It's good to have a neighbour next to you. Now it's a Joburg affair. Bucs lift the Lig Cup and you're runners-up.The empty Champaigne bottles are yours to trickle them down. I can't celebrate while my Makhelwane is watching and drooling. Sea Robbers On the Rampage!!!
