'Birds' Reserves edged out
The Moroka Swallows Reserves suffered a 1-2 away loss to the Jomo Cosmos Reserves at Boksburg Stadium on Monday afternoon.
The 'Beautiful Birds' head coach Gavin Hunt again monitored the Reserves side, who started well through development player Wesley Motadingoane, who opened the scoring barely five minutes after the kick-off.
Swallows' Head of Development, Paul Habib, told the official Swallows website that the 'Birds' were in control of the first stanza as they went into the half-time break 1-0 up.
However, things changed somewhat in the second half when Swallows' Jabulani Mendu was the recipient of a red card.
"After we were reduced to 10 men Cosmos got the opportunity to come at us," said Habib.
"Cosmos equalised midway through the second half, and scored a minute before the final whistle. We had our chances to score but we didn't take them."
Meanwhile, on a said note, Habib announced that Swallows legend Joel 'Ace' Mnini was currently in hospital, where he is recovering from a sugar diabetes complication.
"I would like to wish 'Ace' everything of the best. I hope he recovers quickly, because the boys miss him at the Development Academy!"
