'Birds' in Soweto derby


Moroka Swallows are away at Ellis Park to face Orlando Pirates in a Castle Premiership match on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3.45pm).

'The 'Beautiful Birds' have a record-breaker in young Thulani 'Shaka' Ngcepe, who came on as a substitute to score the winner against log leaders Silver Stars to become the youngest player to score in an official Premiership match.

New 'Bird' Japhet Zwane and  will also look to make an impact should he get a start in the paramount Soweto-derby against the 'Buccaneers'.

Swallows coach has expressed enthusiasm over the new signings, telling the official Swallows website he has no doubt that their quality will be vital for the 'Birds' challenge for league honours.

Being league champions remains Hunt's set target and he knows too well that Pirates are determined to do well as they lie a low 13th position in the league.

"It's a big game and it will be tough for us, but we need to keep winning to maintain the challenge."

Hunt rallied for 'Birds' support saying, "It would be great to see Swallows supporters at the stadium on Saturday, although it's an away fixture."
