PSL Match report: Moroka Swallows beat Mamelodi Sundowns

Posted: 5 March 2013 Time: 21:42

Moroka Swallows beat a 10-man Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Stadium on Tuesday.

Siyabonga Nomvete scored a penalty in the first half, after a foul by Method Mwanjali, who was sent off.

Swallows narrowly held on and were lucky to come away with all three points, despite having an extra man for most of the match.

Sundowns started the game brightly, with Anthony Laffor splitting the Swallows defence as soon as the fifth minute. Teko Modise played the Liberian into space but he failed to find the target with only the keeper to beat.

Sundowns dominated the early exchanges, with Laffor and especially Modise running the show in midfield. Swallows seemed to have forgotten how to play in the first 15 minutes of the game, with the Brazilians having 80 percent of the possession.

The Birds opened the scoring against the run of play when Nomvete netted his fifth goal of the season from the penalty spot, after David Mathebula was brought down from behind in the box by Mwanjali, who received a straight red.

The second half started much like the first with the Brazilians pressing forward, although Lerato Chabangu went close for the visitors with a fierce shot from the edge of the area on the hour mark, hitting the side netting.

Nyasha Mushekwi almost found the equaliser in the 73rd minute, when he got on the end of a Katlego Mphela chip, but his volley went narrowly wide of Greg Etafia’s post.

Mushekwi made a clear impact off the bench and again went close to restoring parity in the 82nd minute, his header from close range going just over the bar.

Editor, o ya bona manje, u r starting with your rat tendencies. What attacks are you talking about. Were you high when watching the game. Because as far as I am concerned the win was like taking candy away from a kid. Mxm, small teams getting abused by swallows left and ryt. First was Pierats now Dunudunu. I wonder where r the Dunudunu faithfools seeing that their nessiah is failing. I told them their teams is fuLl of bunch of undersperforming overated cows who has passed their sell by dates. The likes of abo Tick, the basketball player musweki, Mphola, Nyancow. Mxm, waste of fresh air

Lets all agree to 1 thing I am a Sundowns fan anyway,Sundowns players are average and over-rated they do not deserved to be paid the salary they are geting.Today's Downs can not beat any Soweto teams they donated 9 points to Chiefs,Pirates and Swallows in the 1'st round of league.In real fact Sundowns seem can'nt beat any big team any-more whether is Chiefs,Pirates,Swallows,Supersport of late even Platimum Stars.Out of 20 games with the possible 60 points they have collected only 23 gives away 37 points equavalent to 38%>>.average>>average team performance.

@Mgqwabeniposted: 10:45 pm | Report At that time Sundowns said we want Pitso I said no we must get Shakes Mashaba.Look now Pitso has failed to beat 2 Soweto teams lets wait for the game against Pirates and see if he can get 3 points if he fails he must be relieved from his duties at end of the season.
You know what that is where Sundowns themselves (not pitso) is going to beat pirates
Pitso talks too much and he think he is well informed

Pitso's arrogance will cost him his job...he never hesitates to substitute Teko BUT keeps the out-of-form Mphela for 90 mins....uyageza Pitso and we are watching you.

As for Mwanjale, he didnt surprise me and i expected him to go for the slide tackle...he cannot match with pace and resorts to sliding and as a result, he gives away penalties....he did the same on Tlou...nxaaaaa
