Swallows to continue flying?


Moroka Swallows will be looking to continue on their winning ways when they take on the resurgent AmaZulu outfit in a Castle Premiership match at Princess Magogo Stadium on Wednesday afternoon (kick-off 3.45pm).

Fresh from winning back-to-back league matches, the 'Beautiful Birds' will, however, face an 'Usuthu' side that is itself on a high after beating Black Leopards 1-0 over the weekend.

But Swallows coach Gavin Hunt is confident that his team will have enough left in the tank to come away with one last win in 2006 come Wednesday.

"I watched them play recently and I know what to expect from them," Hunt told the official Swallows website.

He added: "They are a very good team and they will give us a tough time. But, having said that, we desperately need the three points on offer as they will take us to a better position on the log.

"We started the season badly and we are trying to catch up on the teams at the top of the log. We are taking things one step at the time though as we don't want to put our players under pressure."

Swallows will be without Lefa Tsutsulupa and Tsweu Mokoro when they take on 'Usuthu', with the two inspirational midfielders still serving their suspensions.

"We also have to do without players like Ashley Opperman and Sibusiso Dlamini, who are nursing injuries, but I'm confident that the available players will do the job for us," concluded Hunt.
