Arrows, Swallows desperate for points



Golden Arrows and Moroka Swallows will both be desperate for a win when they meet in an Absa Premiership match at King Zwelithini Stadium on Tuesday, kick-off at 7:30pm CAT (SA, GMT+2).

Arrows broke a three-game losing streak in their last outing when they managed a 2-2 draw away to SuperSport United.

The Durban side’s two league wins this season have both come at home and they will be looking to rack up a third in this match.

Abafana Bes’thende are placed 13th on the Absa Premiership log with 10 points from 12 matches.

Swallows have gone five league games without a win and suffered a second successive defeat in their last outing, as they were beaten 3-1 at home by Maritzburg United.

The Soweto side has recorded two wins and four losses from their six away matches this season.

The Birds are placed 10th on the Absa Premiership log with 14 points from 12 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Arrows and Swallows have met in 24 league matches since 2000/01.

The Birds have claimed 10 wins compared to eight for the Durban side, while just six matches have ended in draws.

Arrows’ home record against Swallows reads: P12 W5 D3 L4 GF14 GA13.

Last season Abafana Bes’thende won 2-0 at home, while the Birds claimed revenge with a 3-2 win in the return match in Soweto.
