Swallows Down Brazilians At Odi 30/11/03
Moroka Swallows recorded a nailbiting2-1 victory against arch-rivals Sundowns at the Odi Stadium in Pretoria and the three points take them to joint third place in the Castle Premiership with Wits University.

In the first half both Gauteng teams had their chances to score goals and there was not much to seperate the two giants of South African football.

Veteran Downs striker Daniel Mudau had the best chance of the game and shot over the poles after his strike partner Rotson Kilambe delivered an inch-perfect pass for the former Bafana Bafana forward.

Former Orlando Pirates striker Dennis 'Chesa Mpama' Lota made sure of his chance when Peter Petersen's long throw-in found him in the 18-yard area and the Zambian international beat Andre Arendse with a close-range shot. The Dube Birds went into the break 1-0 up.

After the interval the visitors continued to pressurise their hosts and went up 2-0 courtesy of another ex-Pirates man Warren Lewis.

Lewis exposed the Brazilians weakness at set-pieces when Albert Kometsi swung in a corner and found his team-mate who converted without hesitation.

Kilambe had a chance to put his team back into the game three minutes later but could not beat Greg Etafia with a shot straight at the Nigerian international goalkeeper.

Manqoba Ngwenya gave the Brazilians hope when he scored in the 62nd minute after combining well with Hareaipha 'Simba' Marumo and it seemed the home team could upstage their visitors from Soweto.

Zambian international Kilambe had another chance but his drive at goal hit the side net in the 68th minute as the Downs surged forward for an equaliser.

The resilient Dube Birds defence held off the late onslaught to claim a vital three points in search of the Castle Premiership title.
