Swallows to pile the misery on Wits

Moroka Swallows will want to add to BidVest Wits misery when the two teams meet at Olympia Park on Sunday for their final game of the 2007/08 Absa Premiership season (kick-off 3pm).

The ?Dube Birds? are sitting pretty in sixth place on the log and will be going all out for a win against a Wits side that appears to be suffering from a lack of confidence.

The ?Clever Boys? have lost their last five league games, and Coach Ian Gorowa is adamant his team will not be showing the Johannesburg side any favours.

"There is no doubt that we have to win this match. We are in a good position at the moment but we have to keep pushing for a win to finish on a high,? he told

"Obviously we are satisfied that we will be in the top eight at the end of the season, but our aim is to move even further up the table. We cannot settle for less."

"So we are going to go out and give it our all to claim the three points on offer and try an finish as high as possible,? he added.

However it?s been a long season for Swallows and this is starting to show as several first-team players are battling with injury ahead of Sunday's game.

"We've got a few players struggling with injury and Brent Geyer will definitely be out for a few months. It's been a long season for the boys and it is to be expected that we will have some casualties."

"However, I?m not too worried though because I'm sure that the guys who are fit will do the job,? concluded Gorowa.
