Head to Head


Saturday's match will be the second meeting between the two teams, with the first ending in a 3-2 victory for the Moroka Swallows last season. 

Moroka Swallows Form 


Moroka Swallows were held to a 2-2 draw against Sekhukhune United Reserves last weekend and remain rooted to the bottom of the log.

Swallows have only managed to pick up 10 points from 12 matches played, with two wins, six losses and four draws. 

They have scored 16 goals but have leaked 26 at the back. Additionally, they have conceded two or more goals nine times this season.

However, the Swallows have been playing better recently, with one win, two draws, and two losses from their last five outings. They have scored eight goals and conceded 11 in those matches.

Moroka Swallows have not kept a clean sheet all season and come up against the league leaders in scoring. Can they sort out their defence to keep themselves competitive this Saturday?

Swallows Team News & Injuries


Coach Simon Tshowa might have more questions than answers for the defensive woes that his side has shown this season, but he will need to find a way to keep the Pirates strike duo at bay. 

Tiniko Sithole has been the Swallows' top striker this season with six goals and will need to be on song to keep his team in the game. 

Orlando Pirates Form 


Orlando Pirates picked up their 10th win out of their last 11 league games when they beat Mamelodi Sundowns Reserves 3-2 last Sunday and become the first team to win seven consecutive matches in the DStv Diski Challenge this season.

Orlando Pirates are the league leaders on 30 points from 12 games, with ten wins and two losses. They have found the back of the net 26 times and have conceded just nine goals.

After last weekend's victory, the Pirates team have scored three or more goals six times this season and have netted 16 goals in their previous five matches. They have also kept eight clean sheets this season.

Orlando Pirates are playing superb football this season and are full of goals. Can anyone stop them in this form?

Orlando Pirates Team News & Injuries


Coach Mandla Qhogi will not want complacency to set in when they face a struggling Swallows team this weekend and should select his strongest team available to keep their title ambitions alive.

Boitumelo Radiopane continued this rich vein of form last Sunday with two more goals, bringing his total to nine this season. 

Mohau Nkota is not far behind his partner on seven goals.
