Swal­lows’ top eight hopes soar

Weekend Witness - - Classifieds -

SWAL­LOWS — Moroka Swal­lows’ top eight am­bi­tions re­ceived a ma­jor boost as they beat Free State Stars 1-0 in their PSL match at Dob­sonville Sta­dium yes­ter­day.

The first chance fell to Katlego Mashego, who was al­lowed some space for a shot at goal, but his ef­fort lacked some venom, al­low­ing Stars goal­keeper Tshepo Mot- soe­neng to col­lect the ball eas­ily.

Ea Lla Koto’s first chance of the match came in the 18th minute, Ben­nett Chenene hacked down Lehlo­honolo The­bekang and Dove Wome ri­fled the re­sul­tant free­kick over the cross bar.

Chenene re­deemed him­self from the ear­lier mis­take as he took ad­van­tage of the Stars de­fence’s lapse of con­cen­tra­tion to give the Birds the lead in the 33rd minute.

Swal­lows could have dou­bled their lead in in­jury time. David Mathebula played a pass to Dik­gang Ma­bal­ane who wasted no time cross­ing the ball for Os­car Machapa, but he headed the ball wide with Mot­soe­neng off his line.

— Sapa.
