Arrows send Swallows deeper into turmoil

2010-11-11 07:35

Golden Arrows bounced back from a crushing defeat at the weekend to bury Moroka Swallows further at the bottom of the log, bagging a 1-0 win in an Absa Premiership match at Dobsonville Stadium yesterday evening.

Swallows should have taken the lead early in the first half but Giorgi Nergadze fired his effort over the bar.

Shaun Haschick also had some golden opportunities but failed to convert for the hosts on either side of the break.

Arrows striker Thamsanqa Gabuza, meanwhile, missed two chances for Arrows in the opening stanza and, with the Birds unable to find the back of the net, the visitors struck with 13 minutes on the clock.

Arrows midfielder Siyabonga Nkosi latched on to a pass from Itumeleng Duiker to score the winning goal in the 77th minute.

Swallows suffered their fourth straight loss and, with only one point from seven games, are floundering at the bottom of the standings.

Arrows, who went down 4-1 to Wits at the weekend, will hope to continue their winning ways against Mpumalanga Black Aces in Chatsworth on Sunday.
