'Birds' to fly past Sundowns

Moroka Swallows will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways when they play Mamelodi Sundowns in a Castle Premiership match at Germiston Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Fresh from last weekend's 1-2 loss to SuperSport United in the SAA Supa 8, the 'Beautiful Birds' meet Sundowns, who are yet to register a win in the league.

"The SuperSport loss is water under the bridge now and we are firmly focussing on the Sundowns clash," 'Birds' assistant coach Innocent 'Ayobayo' Mayoyo told the Swallows official website.

He added: "Sundowns are under pressure to win their first game, whilst we have three points already in the bag. We won't show them any respect, we'll attack them from the word go.?

"There are no easy games in the league now, all games are equal. We are going to treat this game just like any other game. Our main focus is to get the three points and we'll do everything in our power to get them on Sunday."

Mayoyo called on the 'Dube Birds' fans to come out in big numbers to support the team.

"Come and witness the nice brand of football that Swallows are known for. I promise you we will try our best not to disappoint you on Sunday," pleaded 'Ayobayo'.
