Wits v Swallows In Numbers

Absa Premiership: Wits v Moroka Swallows

Date: 16 April 2014

Time: 19:30

Venue: Milpark Stadium


Wits welcome Swallows at the back of their win against Platinum Stars and coming to this one, they'll be targeting to revive their league title hopes. Gavin Hunt seems to have brought the best out of S'thembiso Ngcobo, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Jabulani Shongwe, and will hope they come to the party and bag the spoils. On the other hand, Swallows are flying low and if they want to finish on a high, they just pull all the stops tonight.
