Swallows looking to consolidate

Moroka Swallows will be looking to consolidate their position on the Castle Premiership log by putting one over Santos at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Sunday at 3.45pm.

The 'Beautiful Birds' are on a high after their impressive 2-1 away victory against Maritzburg United last Sunday.

"The victory was a confidence booster as our morale was down prior to the Maritzburg clash," Birds captain Goodman Mazibuko told the club's official website.

He added: "The players are looking forward to the Santos encounter and we are confident that we will beat them.

"Our focus is to move into the top eight bracket and a victory against the Cape Town side will take us close to that and then if we beat AmaZulu on Wednesday, we would have achieve our goal."

The hot Rustenburg weather is expected to play a role come Sunday, as the heat will make it impossible for the teams to play a fast-paced brand of football.

"Everybody knows that Cape Town team struggle against heat and we will use this to our advantage as we will throw everything at them from the first whistle," said Mazibuko.

The Swallows captain urged the 'Birds' supporters to come out in numbers to support the team.

"This is our home game and we will be glad if our fans can paint the stadium maroon and white on Saturday," Mazibuko concluded.
