We are aiming for Africa - Swallows PRO 27/04/05
Moroka Swallows public relations officer Sipho Xulu claims the team have targeted a third place finish in the Castle Premiership this season.

This would enable the Dube Birds, who are currently in fourth position, to qualify for the African Confederations Cup.

"Our aim is definitely to finish in the top three in order to qualify for Africa next season. It's all we have left to play for after being dumped out of the Absa Cup we won last year," Xulu told the club's official website.

The Rand-based side have been enduring a tough time on and off the field over the last couple of months. The much-publicised boardroom struggles coincided with string of defeats in the PSL and elimination from the Absa Cup.

Xulu can therefore not over emphasise the importance of last weekend's 2-0 victory over Golden Arrows.

"That win was very important in many more ways than one. We really needed the points to boost the morale of the squad. It has given us a real spirit of resurrection," he explained.

Swallows next league game is against Bloemfontein Celtic at home on Monday. Xulu believes the Phunye Sele Sele will provide stiff opposition, but that Gavin Hunt's men will emerge victors.

"Celtic are pushing hard for a top eight position so it will definitely be a tough game. We have beaten them in the Absa Cup, but they beat us in the league. It is therefore even between the two of us this season, so we will want to put that record straight," Xulu added.

Meanwhile, the club also announced that the Bethelem Supporters Club Branch will be launched at the Bekens Park Hotel on Sunday, May 1. All Johannesburg supporters groups are urged to attend and can contact Sipho Xulu on his cellphone: 083 5061520.
