‘Birds' reserves set to fly

The Moroka Swallows Reserves host SuperSport United Reserves in a Premier Soccer League's (PSL) Reserve match at Germiston Stadium on Monday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

The 'Beautiful Birds' coach Gavin Hunt is looking forward to using some of the players who did not play in Friday night's Castle Premiership 3-0 drubbing of Engen Santos.

"I will mix the team up today," the 'Birds' coach told the club's official website. "We have a number of players who are suspended from Premiership matches.

"In line with our vision for the future, I have called up a few development players to join the team this afternoon," concluded the Swallows mentor.

Meanwhile, the 'Birds' next reserve league fixture against Kaizer Chiefs, due to be played at Germiston Stadium on Monday, May 28, has been brought forward to Thursday, May 17 at the same venue (kick-off 3pm).
