Win moves Swallows closer to PSL safety

Oscar Machapa"s Swallows beat Free State Stars 3-1 in Bethlehem on Saturday afternoon

Moroka Swallows beat home side Free State Stars 3-1 at Goble Park in Bethlehem on a Saturday afternoon to give themselves better chances of avoiding play-offs at the end of the ABSA Premiership season.

Stars scored first through a Siyabonga Nomvete penalty in the first half to take a 1-0 lead. Stars were to get a penalty of their own, and keeper Kennedy Mweene converted to level the scores 1-1, and the teams went to the break tied.

Clever substitutions by coach Gordon Igesund saw the Dube Birds creating better scoring chances in the second half.

Ashraf Hendricks headed Swallows' 2nd goal in the 74th minute following a corner kick awarded to the visitors.

Bradley Ritson then made sure of the Soweto giants' victory, which shifted them to the 13th place on the log, a position that Igesund hopes to keep if other results elsewhere favour his team.

Three points gained today, have catapulted Swallows above Maritzburg United and Vasco da Dama who now occupy 15th and 14th positions respectively on the PSL log.

Maritzburg are due to play Mpumalanga Black Aces this afternoon in Mpumalanga, and Aces have nothing better than pride to play for, having been relegated a few weeks ago.

Vasco, are due to host unpredictable Platinum Stars in Cape Town, and Swallows will be eagerly awaiting news of the results of the Vasco and Marzitzburg matches.
