'Dube Birds' fired up for Arrows

The 'Beautiful Birds' have not had an ideal start since the league resumed this month and are in danger of slipping into the bottom half of the table.

The team has been working hard since their last match, and are ready to challenge for maximum points on Saturday but this will not be easy against Arrows who have been in fine form of late.

'Abafana Bes'thende' have picked up seven points out of a possible nine since the league restarted earlier this month, with wins over Platinum Stars and AmaZulu sandwiching a draw against high-flying Free State Stars.

Swallows midfielder Lefa Tsutsulupa told that the players have turned the corner in their preparations for the match..

"We have been working hard and are fired-up for the match on Saturday," said Tsutsulupa

"However, we have to stay positive because the most important thing is how we play on the day," he added.

The two teams played to a 1-1 draw earlier in the 2007/08 season, and Swallows will be looking to improve on that result and leapfrog back into the top half of the Absa Premiership standings.
