The Data Day: Polokwane City vs. Swallows

In our new regular feature, we look at all the match stats after Moroka Swallows games. These stats are provided by Prozone Sports.

We had 16 shots at goal with 6 of those hitting the target. This is marginally more than Polokwane City, who had 15 shots with 5 on target. Luyolo Nomandela, who came on as a second half substitute, has four attempts at goal but with only one hitting the target. He was unlucky to see a low drive cannon off the post.

In the possession stakes, both sides had 50% of the ball, with Swallows having 43% of their possession inside the Polokwane half.

Polokwane committed 14 fouls, with match winner Rendani Ndou committing 5 of those.

We attempted 22 crosses from open play in the game, with just 3 reaching a teammate. Felix Obada had the most deliveries from wide with 5 balls swung in, with Tsutsulupa and Chabangu each crossing the ball 4 times.

Lucky Baloyi, playing in an unfamiliar right back position, was the game’s top passer with 59 passes attempted – 42 reached a teammate.

Defensively, Lantshene Phalane continued his excellent season in midfield, winning 7 of his 8 tackles for a game high return. Anver Esterhuizen was another good performer, playing on the right of the midfield diamond and attempting 5 tackles, winning 3. The former Free State Stars man also won 5 of his 7 aerial duels in the game.

Our next game is tomorrow night against Bidvest Wits at Dobsoville Stadium. Kickoff is at 7.30pm.
