Swallows V Chiefs In Numbers

Absa Premiership Round 24 – Moroka Swallows vs Kaizer Chiefs
 
Date: 18 March 2015
 
Time: 19:30
 
Venue: Dobsonville Stadium
 
Relegation threatened Moroka Swallows entertain the struggling table-toppers, Kaizer Chiefs at the Dobsonville Stadium this evening as they seek for redemption in order to retain their PSL status. The Dube Birds who currently lie in 15th position, have been dealt a huge blow with news that head coach Fani Madida has vacated his position at the helm of the club. It looks set to be seen who will take over the team’s remaining fixtures of the 2014/15 campaign. The Amakhosi on the other hand are equally under threat to relinquish their position at the top of the log following a shock 1-0 loss to Maritzburg United in their last league encounter mid-last week.

Key Stats:
 
Despite their inconsistent run lately, Maswaiswai will take heart from home ground advantage, coupled with entries in the final third (69.24) as well as tackles (23) that dominate the Amakhosi. Stuart Baxter’s side are still finding their feet in 2015, having only claimed a single league win, and will now look to take advantage of the coachless Birds.
