'Birds' set sights on SuperSport


Moroka Swallows will be looking to put one over SuperSport United on Saturday night to enhance their chances of competing in the top eight next season.

'The Beautiful Birds' are currently lying eighth on the log and a victory against SuperSport will increase their chances of qualifying for this competition.

"Look, this match is probably our toughest match of the season as SuperSport are fighting for the league title and they will be trying hard to win this one," Swallows defender Edward Malinga told the club's official website.

He added: "But even though they are being coached by our former coach, they must not expect any favours from us. We want to finish the season on a high note and we are targeting nine points out of the remaining three games.

"On Saturday it will come down to who wants it the most and the approach to the game. One thing is for sure though, we are ready for them."

SuperSport beat Swallows 2-1 in the first round of the 2007/08 season and the 'Beautiful Birds' will be looking to avenge that defeat.

"We have to avenge that defeat and it will be sweet revenge indeed if we win on Saturday, as it will hamper their chances of winning the league," concluded Malinga.
