Mamelodi Sundowns

How Swallows Can Challenge Downs For Title

Swallows FC could have a realistic chance to go all the way in the title race with Mamelodi Sundowns if they beat the defending champions, this according to one of their in-form players.

Swallows missed out on an opportunity to go top of the DSTV Premiership standings when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Chippa United on Wednesday, going level on points with log leaders Sundowns.

Currently, in second place, the Dube Birds visit the 10-time PSL champions at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday, January 23. Both sides will put their unbeaten records on the line in a fixture which will no doubt attract a lot of attention this weekend.

Swallows striker Ruzaigh Gamildien, who has bagged nine league goals this season, said a victory would give them a good chance to compete with Sundowns for the title until the very end.

“It will definitely be a six-pointer. If we can get a victory there, that does not only stop Sundowns from running away, but it actually gives us a chance to compete with them for the league,” Gamildien tells the Siya crew.

“Obviously Sundowns have the best team on paper and it’s very difficult to stop them once they are on a good run, but in the South African league, there are lots of surprises. You might find Sundowns might struggle against the smaller and compete against the bigger teams. Obviously, we are going to be motivated and try to stop Sundowns from getting three points.”
