Birds to go all out for log top spot

2013-11-30 00:00

MOROKA Swallows striker Siyabonga Nomvete says if they maintain their fighting spirit, they will not have any difficulties against Mamelodi Sundowns tomorrow.

The two teams meet in a top-of-the-table clash at Loftus Versfeld, with Swallows eyeing the top spot on the log with a victory against the log leaders.

“We need to work hard and work as a team if we are to get something on Sunday,” Nomvete told

“We need to show the same fighting spirit we did in our last games and if we can do so, I think nothing will stop us from achieving our goal which is to get the three points.”

The former Bafana Bafana striker is enjoying a good combination with Edward Manqele this season.

However, Manqele is on loan from Sundowns and will not be available for the match owing to a clause in his contract.

“That won’t be a problem,” Bhele said. “We trust each other in the team and we don’t have stars.

“We treat each other the same and, at the end of the day, it will be 11 against 11 on the field. We just need to work hard to get the result.”
