Preview : Moroka Swallows v Zulu Royals 11/03/04
After their 5-1 hammering by Santos last week, The Dube Birds will be eager to get their season back on track and they should have little difficulty in overcoming the relegation bound Royals, who do not have the quality to match Swallows.

The Swallows players have had plenty of time to reflect on their loss to the Cape side and astute coach Gavin Hunt will certainly have taken corrective measures to ensure that his team gets their title challenge going again.

New signings Carlo Scott and Thabang Lebese will be eager to get more game time in Saturday after each only playing for one half against Santos.

The Birds will have to make do without influential skipper Goodman Mazibuko, who scored a brilliant goal in his last game for Swallows.

He sits out this match with a suspension after having picked up three yellow cards.

His natural replacement would have been the newly signed Gabriel 'Ninja' Mofokeng, but the former Ajax Amsterdam player is away on national duty with Amaglug-Glug.

Hunt is likely to draft in the ever-hard-working Peter Rabolele as a replacement.

The manager will also be emphasizing the importance of not taking the match too lightly because of the Usuthu's lowly log position.

The team has been playing some entertaining football under the guidance of the wily Clive Barker and are always capable of scoring goals - which has been the Bird's weakness of late.

The match kicks off at 4pm on Saturday at the Rand Stadium.
