Starting XI: Swallows v Stellies

DStv Premiership

Teams: Swallows FC v Stellenbosch

Date: 18 May 2021

Venue: Dobsonville Stadium

Swallows will be eyeing a return to winning ways in the DStv Premiership when they host relegation-threatened Stellenbosch FC on Tuesday afternoon at Dobsonville Stadium.

The match will get underway at 15h00.

The Birds will be looking to end a streak of five successive 1-1 draws following their stalemate with Kaizer Chiefs last Wednesday.

Brandon Truter's charges find themselves in fifth but a victory would see them leapfrog Golden Arrows into third place.

In contrast, Stellies could be having a relegation fight on their hands after extending their winless run to nine matches with a goalless drawagainst Orlando Pirates a week ago.

Steve Barker's troops have dropped down to 14th place on the log, just a point above the relegation play-off spot held by Chippa United.

The sides could not be separated in their first-round meeting after playing to a 1-1 draw in the Western Cape late last year.

Get and Stay connected to DStv to enjoy 20 days of incredible football, 10-30 May. 

Here's how they line up:

Swallows: 50. Tshabalala, 27. Matlaba, 38. Sait, 5. Letlabika, 22. Hlanti, 3. Mahlatsi, 15. Nyatama, 9. Mokoena, 24. Basadien, 14. Thibedi, 26. Malinga.
