The Absa Premiership encounter is set to start at 19h30 and Mark Harrison will have it all to do against a Swallows side that is looking to extend their lead at the top, and pile more misery on bottom-of-the-table Abafana Bes’thende. However, Sithole, who has started five league games so far this campaign, says beating the Dube Birds is non-negotiable if they are to move up the table.
He told the Siya crew, “We have prepared well for this game since last week. We are ready and you can see that the guys want to win. The position that we are in on the log is not good, but it’s us that got ourselves into that situation and we have to rescue ourselves."
"We are aware that Swallows have brilliant individuals players who can turn the game on its head, but we have to try not to concede and, most importantly, score. Since the season started, we’ve scored three goals and we’ve been conceding in every game. So we have to make sure that even if we score two goals, we don’t allow them to score," concluded the former Chippa United star.
