Petersen: 'Attitudes need to change'

Moroka Swallows defender Peter Petersen believes that the Birds can win the title if the players stop choosing which games to perform in.

"It is totally confusing that when playing against a big team, for instance, we dish out an excellent display, only to show a pathethic performance against the so-called small teams," Petersen told Soccer Laduma.

"Had it not been this attitude, Swallows would have won the league some time ago," he said.

The Beautiful Birds defender believes that everyone in the team has a role to play if Swallows are to win the league.

He added: "We are a growing brand and therefore need to do whatever we can to help achieve the team achieve all its objectives."

Swallows will play Ajax Cape Town at Orlando Stadium on Sunday, February 19 when the Castle Premiership resumes next month.
