Gorowa - 'Be careful of Thanda'

Moroka Swallows coach Ian Gorowa has warned his charges not to underestimate Thanda Royal Zulu, whom they will be hosting in Absa Premiership action on Sunday afternoon.

Since their shock win over Kaizer Chiefs on February 13, the visitors have gone five games without a win - four of them ending in defeat.

"We have to be very careful of them as they are in a desperate need of a win and I expect them to come hard on us on Sunday," Gorowa told

He added: "We have been doing well so far and I don't foresee us having difficulty in continuing that winning run against Thanda. But having said that I'm expecting a tough game against them.

"All we need to do is to stick to our gameplan and we'll emerge victorious. This is our last game before the Nedbank Cup and we have to win it to keep up the pressure on the top teams."

Thanda will once again rely on former Kaizer Chiefs duo Serge Djiehoua and Scara Ngobese to win them the game against Swallows.

"These are very good players who can hurt you badly if you underestimate them. We need to look out for them," concluded Gorowa.
