Amatuks vs. Swallows: 3 key battles



We look at 3 key battles ahead of tonight's game against AmaTuks.

Asavela Mbekile vs. Ronald Ketjijere

The battle in the middle of the park between these two powerful defensive midfielders will be crucial to who dictates this game. Mbekile was man of the match in Friday's 1-0 defeat against Ajax Cape Town and has a great engine and attitude. Ketjijere is a very strong tackler and marker and has been used to track the key men of the opposition on numerous occasions.

Larry Cohen vs. Atusaye Nyondo:

Cohen has come back into some strong form after losing his place a few weeks back, and brings a calmness to the back four with his reading of the game. His accurate diagonal passes are another feature to look out for. Nyondo is Tuks' top scorer with 7 goals this season and is very powerful and strong in the air.

Siyabonga Nomvethe vs. Grant Kekana

Bhele is still going strong at 36 years of age. He has gone 5 games without a goal and will be keen to get back amongst the goals. Kekana is a quick and strong right back, who leads Tuks' assist charts with 4 goals created this season. The battle between these two in both halves will be a important decider in who takes home the points.

Kickoff is at 7.30pm at Tuks Stadium. The game will be shown live on SuperSport 4.
