Inconsistent Swallows Form Explained

Former Swallows FC midfielder Joseph Makhanya has shared his thoughts on the current form of the Dube Birds in the DStv Premiership.

Swallows started the season like a house on fire and at some stage, they were tipped as title contenders. But, in the second half of the season, they've managed just one win out of their last five encounters.

Makhanya has revealed what he thinks is the reason behind Swallows' recent inconsistency.

"I think at the beginning of the season no-one understood Swallows FC, they took everybody by surprise, even when you look at their brand of football, they were nice to watch," Makhanya tells the Siya crew.

"When the time went on, we saw some cracks and imbalances and talks of players being wanted by other teams, so I think that is what destabilized the team and other clubs started to (notice) their weaknesses and game plan."

'Dukuduku' also feels that maybe a new approach is needed so as to avoid the risk of losing their spot in the top eight.

"'They now know them, hence we see these inconsistent results. They've been drawing so many games and I think that they need to change their plans so they can guarantee their top eight. 

"They need to start new things and step up, I feel like players struggled to deal with the pressure of being on top," he added.
