Lota can't explain his good form 09/02/04
Moroka Swallows Zambian international Dennis Lota is starting to find the form that made him the most-feared striker in the Castle Premiership a couple of seasons ago.

With three goals in his last two games for the Dube Birds the 30-year-old looks to be fast approaching the form that won him the Golden Boot in the 1999/2000 season while playing for Orlando Pirates.

Speaking to SASoccer365.com on Monday, Lota was at a loss for reasons for the turn-around in his fortunes.

"Its not that I am doing anything different in front of the goal, but thats soccer for you! One day nothing will work the next day everything keeps going right, said Lota.

However, I must compliment our coach Gavin Hunt who has got the Swallows players playing very disciplined soccer where everybody plays for the good of the team.

Saturdays impressive 3-0 win over Manning Rangers left the Birds in fourth position on the Castle Premiership standings just four points behind leaders Santos.

Swallows (33 points, 17 games) are level on points with third-placed Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs (33, 14). Ajax cape Town are second (35, 16) with Santos leading the way with 37 points from 19 starts.

Lota, however, warn against betting against the Birds grabbing their maiden Premiership title.

"Most people are focusing on kaizer Chiefs and Ajax which suits us just fine because there is no pressure on us, said Lota.

If we just go out and play our natural game and let results take care of themselves I am sure we will be in with a good shout at the end of the season.

Despite his return to form Lota has no intention of ever representing his country agains despite a good friend and former teammate being the Zambian national coach.

"I have played in four Africa Cup of Nations tournaments and in 1996 Zambia won the bronze medal, said Lota.

2002 was my last tournament and I have retired from international football even if Kalusha Bwalya whom I played with and now coach Zambia wants me in the team.

I have been there and done that and I think young players must take over from where we left.
