Swallows eyeing fourth spot

Moroka Swallows will be gunning for maximum points when they host Free State Stars at the Germiston Stadium on Wednesday evening (kick-off 7.30pm).

A win for the 'Dube Birds' could propel them up to fourth place in the Absa Premiership standings, such is the closeness of this year's league campaign, and coach Ian Gorowa's men are well placed to claim all three points from Stars.

The Free State side has won just one league match away from home all season, and have managed only one victory in their last seven league encounters.

The Birds, meanwhile, have been in fine form of late and before their unfortunate loss to Platinum Stars last week, Swallows had gone unbeaten in eight league matches.
Left-back Brent Geyer told morokaswallows.co.za that Wednesday's game was crucial for the 'Beautiful Birds'.

"Our goal is to finish the season in the top four at least. If we win against Stars we can get closer to achieving this," he said. "There is no doubt it's going to be a tough game, but the guys are really focused and we know what is expected of us."

He added that preparations for the game were going well, with the coach's plans for Stars "falling into place nicely".

The 'Dube Birds' have a slight edge going into Wednesday's game; they ran out 2-0 winners when the two teams clashed in league action at Goble Park in December 2007.
