There has been plenty of action going on in the Bird's nest ahead of their upcoming Castle Premiership match against Silver Stars at the Rand Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Birds completed a major scoop when they signed promising young Amaglug-Glug midfielder Gabriel 'Ninja' Mofokeng from Ajax Amsterdam last week and the team's officials have been working around the clock in order to obtain his international clearance.
Good news for the Swallows faithful is that manager Gavin Hunt confirmed that 'Ninja' will be available for the Stars game.
"Mofokeng's clearance came through this morning and he will be sitting on the bench for tomorrow's game," the coach said
Hunt also mentioned that the U-23 international has been brought into the team solely as a midfielder, meaning that he still has a concern over the lack of depth in his defence.
"Yes, I am a bit worried about my lack of options at the back and this is something we will be looking at."
Hunt confirmed that veteran midfielder Thabang Lebese has been training with the team for the last couple of days with a view to a permanent move.
"Thabang has been with us for a few days and it is up to him to prove that he can fit into our plans. I believe that he still has the legs to do a good job in the Premiership and we will decide in the next week whether to sign him or not," he said.
He also admitted that he was concerned about the lack of consistency his team tends to show.
"Sure, that has been worrying me," he said. "We can talk and talk about it, but I have spoken to the guys about this problem and they know that they need to do. We don't intend to repeat the mistakes which we made last season."
With regards to tomorrow's game against Stars, Hunt adopted his usual approach when asked about the opponent's possible danger men such as Manqoba Mkhize and Surprise Moriri.
"No, we won't have any special plans for them. I focus more on getting the best out of my own players because I know that if my team plays to it's full potential there is no team that can trouble us," the manager added.
