Stars outlast Swallows

Posted: 27 September 2014 Time: 14:52

Free State Stars rallied from two goals down to oust Moroka Swallows 3-2 in the Absa Premiership on Saturday afternoon.

Swallows enjoyed a 2-0 lead at the break thanks to strikes from new signing Vladimir Mandic and Felix Obada.

However, Ea Lla Koto responded with interest via a brace from Adam Abdul-Basit and goal from Moeketsi Sekola at Goble Park.

After a slow start, Swallows went ahead in the 20th minute as new signing Mandic scored his first goal for the club with a scuffed shot that looped over goalkeeper Ayanda Mtshali.


Obada then doubled the advantage with a composed finish on the stroke of half-time.

Stars, though, pulled on back soon after the interval, as Sekola volleyed home from six yards out.

Adam then equalised with a superb volley from a tight angle in the 63rd minute before bagging the winner with a low strike 10 minutes later.
