We played to a goalless draw against Swallows FC this evening at Princess Magogo Stadium. Even though no goals were scored it was another high paced entertaining game from both sides.
In the first 45 minutes of play we did well to go on the attack against the Birds, but could not capitalise on the chances created. The team did well to retain ball and made us of it to probe the Swallows defence from all angles. Cele made an attempt at goals in the 7th minute but failed to beat the keeper who collected easily.
The game seemed to be an end to end affair with both teams fighting hard to get behind the defence and taking chances, with both Gumede and February having to work to keep a clean sheet for the night.
Swallows managed to create a number of scoring opportunities themselves but some hard defensive work and Gumede proving to be a formidable last line of defence frustrated them as they were denied the opportunities.
Our best chance of scoring came in the 54th minute as Mutizwa struck a cross. His attempt caught February off guard but hit the cross bar to deny him.
Just one point from the game and a lot of positives to build on as we go on the road to face Stellenbosch FC at Danie Craven Stadium on Saturday evening.
