Swallows fight back to earn draw against Sundowns


Swallows fought back to draw 1-1 with Mamelodi Sundowns at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville on Saturday afternoon.

Sundowns went into the halftime break leading 1-0 against Swallows as they were the dominant side with the Soweto side struggling to penetrate the defence of the Tshwane team.

It was Kermit Erasmus who opened the scoring on the stroke of halftime.

But in the second half, Swallows put in a much better performance and were rewarded late in the game with Musa Nyatama finding the equaliser in injury time – 96th minute to ensure Swallows maintain their unbeaten run in the DStv Premiership.

The hosts, though, had been wasteful in the match, having created a lot of scoring opportunities.

‘The Dube Birds’, who absorbed most of the pressure, are satisfied as they walked away with a draw, a credible result for Swallows to add to their impressive start.

Sundowns remain in top spot but level on 27 points with second-placed Swallows after 13 matches.
