Swallows too strong for Aces

Moroka Swallows were comprehensive 3-1 winners over Mpumalanga Black Aces in their Absa Premiership match at the Dobsonville Stadium on Wednesday.

It was Swallows’ second victory of their campaign, thanks to a brace from Koketso Mmotong.

Swallows started the match three points above bottom-of-the-log Aces.

The opening goal came from Swallows in the 63rd minute, when Mmotong found the net with a headed goal off a Siyabonga Nomvete cross.

Aces replied in the 70th minute with a goal from David Mathebula. James Madidilani provided the cross and Mathebula slotted home from inside the area to level the scores at 1-1.

Swallows did not let the equaliser stop their attacking play and took the lead again in the 84th minute. Mmoteng scored his second from a corner with a well-struck header past Aces keeper Francis Chansa to make it 2-1.

Nomvete was involved again in injury time when he scored the Birds’ third goal to secure the 3-1 victory.

In another match played on Wednesday, SuperSport United produced another tepid performance with a goalless draw against Free State Stars at the largely deserted Lucas Moripe Stadium, in Atteridgeville. — Sapa
