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.

That was good game and am happy with fighting spirit the guys showed, even thou we one man down we still fought searching for a goal. People who understand soccer saw that, unless they are just hooligans. This yellow machine is coming alright and am appealing to the yellow nations to support our team and our coach. In Sir Pitso the special one i believe, please masandawana amahle don't listen to these chiefs supporters, whenever they open their mouth they spit insults, curses.

The way i see it Motsepe has two choices:

Sell a teams back to Natasha at an understandable rate (Fundowns has no value left)

Or, register it for the Absa Currie Cup as a rugby outfit. There is no team anymore here.

Is Teko really this cursed? Now he relegates Sundowns. Roger will relegate Pierats next season.
