Platinum Stars V Swallows Preview

Absa Premiership

Teams:  Platinum Stars v Moroka Swallows

Date: 1 April 2014

Venue: Royal Bafokeng Stadium

Moroka Swallows will be hoping to end a terrible run of form in the Absa Premiership when they travel to Rustenburg to take on Platinum Stars in a league match at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Tuesday night.

The match is scheduled to start at 19h30.

The Birds have only won one match in their last ten league outings which sees them hovering in the bottom half of the table in 12th place on 27 points.

Furthermore, they come into this match off the back of a 1-0 defeat against Orlando Pirates in their last league match, but a win will see them up to tenth place.

Stars, on the other hand, have had a decent season and find themselves in fifth place on the table with 35 points from 23 games.

Stars come into this game in a positive frame of mind after beating Maritzburg United 2-1 in their last league game, and win on Tuesday night will see them up to fourth place.

In head-to-head stats, Stars and Swallows have met in 21 league matches since 2003/04.

The Birds have 13 wins compared to five for Dikwena, while just three matches have been drawn.

Stars have won five of their 10 home matches against Swallows, suffering four defeats in the process.

When the teams met earlier this season, the Birds claimed a 2-0 home win thanks to goals from Siyabonga Nomvethe and Lerato Chabangu.
