Swallows Look To Bounce Back

Moroka Swallows will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they take on Ajax Cape Town in an Absa Premiership match at Cape Town Stadium on tonight.

Swallows come into the match having suffered a 2-1 defeat away to Golden Arrows in their last outing.

The Birds, however, will have to be at their best to beat the Ajax team that is unbeaten in their last four league matches.

Swallows midfielder Asavela Mbekile is confident though that the Birds will come away with something in this encounter.

“We want to close the gap between us and log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns and if we win against Ajax, then we’ll be just two points adrift of them and that’s what we’re aiming for,” Mbekile told the Siya crew.

“Ajax, however, are difficult to beat at home, so we might settle for a point, but we definitely want to get something out of this game. We can’t afford to walk away with nothing because we want to keep the pressure on Sundowns,” added Mbekile.

Swallows took four points off the Cape side last season, winning 3-1 in Soweto before a 1-1 draw in the return game.
