Gorowa - 'We can still win it'

The 'Dube Birds' suffered their third consecutive league loss, to Golden Arrows on Saturday - a defeat that would have dented their title aspirations.

Gorowa, however, will have none of it.

"We will keep on trying and hopefully things will go our way soon," said Gorowa. "We have to dig deep and try to win our next games."

Swallows lost 0-1 to ten-man Arrows thanks to a controversial penalty that was awarded to the KwaZulu-Natal side in the dying minutes.

"When things are not going your way you tend to suffer from poor decisions like this one," said a philosophical Gorowa. "I don't know what the referee saw, but from where I was sitting I could clearly see that Mshengu dived.

"But whatever happened happened. We need to look forward and maybe luck will be on our side soon."

Despite the loss to Arrows, Gorowa was proud of the display and commitment shown by his charges.

"They put in a very good show and they must be commended for that. They showed a fighting spirit; something that was missing in our previous games," concluded Gorowa.
