'Birds' hope to continue flying high

Moroka Swallows will be looking to continue their winning ways when they clash with Santos in a Castle Premiership match at Athlone Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The 'Beautiful Birds' have started the league on a high note - beating Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates, before playing to a goalless draw with Mamelodi Sundowns.

"Santos are a very tough side to beat especially in Cape Town, therefore we are anticipating a tough fixture against them," Swallows coach Ian Gorowa told the club's official website.

He added: "What makes them more dangerous is their never-say-attitude they showcased against AmaZulu last Sunday. But we are ready for them. We are going to Cape Town to collect maximum points.

"We have started the season well and we would like to keep that momentum going, but we are aware of the difficult task ahead. The unpredictable Cape Town weather won't make things any easier for us either."

Gorowa urged Swallows' Cape Town-based fans to come out in their droves to support the team.

"With you behind us, nothing can go wrong. We are counting on you to be there on Sunday and we promise that we we'll do everything in our power not to disappoint you," concluded Gorowa.
