Unbeaten Swallows Move Level On Points With Downs

DStv Premiership

Result: Baroka 0-1 Swallows FC

Date: 16 January 2021

Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium

Swallows FC moved level on points with DStv Premiership leaders Mamelodi Sundowns after defeating Baroka FC 1-0 on Saturday evening.

Swallows coach Brandon Truter made one change from the draw with Orlando Pirates as Sifiso Hlanti replaced Thabo Matlaba, who picked up an injury on Wednesday.

There was a big incentive for the Dube Birds heading into the clash after Mamelodi Sundowns drew with SuperSport United earlier in the day and a win would see the side move level with leaders.

Baroka, who had not tasted victory since their 2-1 success over Chippa United in December, were without the services of defender Denwin Farmer who was sent off in the loss to Sundowns.

Despite both sides eager to get back on the winning trail, neither were able to find the breakthrough in the opening 45 minutes.

Normal service resumed in the second half as Ruzaigh Gamildien bagged his eighth goal of the season in the 57th minute.

Baroka, meanwhile, were unable to find a way past the Swallows defence in the second half, which has seen the Limpopo side slip to their fifth league defeat of the campaign.
