Swallows hold Downs in Reserve League



The Mamelodi Sundowns Reserve Team played to their first draw, when they were held 1-1 by Moroka Swallows at the Makhulong Stadium. Swallows are placed at the bottom of the Reserve League log while Sundowns are second behind neighbours Supersport United.

Rising young talent, Samuel Julies got the early goal for ‘Bafana Ba Style’ after some good interplay between Musa Nyatama and Jabulani Shongwe to release Julies in the 7th minute of the match. This was the youngsters' second goal for Sundowns in the Gauteng Monday League.

Swallows pulled one back in the 27th minute to end the first half with the teams level. The second half started with both teams trying to find the lead to no avail, but Sundowns looked the more promising side.

In the 54th minute Coach, Zipho Dlangalala made a double substitution, bringing in Solomon Okpako for Musa Nyatama and Thabo Makgothi for Anthony Laffor. In the 63rd minute the coach made another double substitution, this time introducing Wandisile Letlabika for Thembinkosi Mdledle and Abel Mabaso for Xolani Mdaki.

Both teams tried to go ahead for most of the second half but the match ended 1-1.

Coach Dlangalala says he is glad that Maritzburg-born defender Siyabonga Ngubane played a full 90 minutes without feeling any pain after recovering from injury. Another player that has recovered from injury and played a full match was goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands, who just recovered from the shoulder injury he picked up in the Nedbank Cup match against Bidvest Wits.
