Moroka Swallows moved up to second spot in the Castle Premiership following their 1-0 win over Silver Stars at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Limpopo province on Sunday afternoon.
Striker Dennis Lota came off the bench to head home the winning goal for the visiting Dube Birds late in the second half.
Both sides created numerous opportunities, what wasted all of them, some clear-cut chances.
However, Swallows secured the three points eight minutes from the end when Lota out-jumped the Silver Stars defence to latch onto a corner by fellow substitute Edzai Kasinauyo.
The Beautiful Birds moved to second on the table with their win over Silver Stars, it is their third victory in row for Swallows over the Limpopo based team.
