CHIEFS START AS FAVOURITES – MATCH ODDS AND BETTING

Despite the win, Chiefs remain in fourth place in the league standings with 46 points from 29 matches – level on points with third place Royal AM, who have a game in hand over the Soweto giants.

Following a three-game winless run in the league, Swallows will be determined to bounce back and return to winning ways after they were held to a goalless draw by Chippa United at Dobsonville Stadium in their previous match.

The draw sees Swallows remain in the relegation zone in 15th place after 29 matches – level on 25 points with bottom of the table Baroka FC.

Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane admits to having one eye on next season. 

“We have to reinforce the squad, we have to beef up, we don’t have a choice. We have to get players that can understand the pressure and take it head-on,” says Zwane.

“Unfortunately, there aren’t too many players out there that have the desire and quality of playing for a team of Kaizer Chiefs’ calibre and the demands that come with the responsibility of playing for this club.

“We are headhunting, scouting and doing everything in our power to get the right players to help the youngsters we have because they are the future of the club.”

Swallows coach Dylan Kerr is wary of a loss and the implications.

“We need to win and hope Chippa can beat Galaxy and Maritzburg beat Baroka,” he says.

“Baroka could get out of this, Galaxy could get out of this, and we could get [straight] relegated.

“If we can’t score a goal with that much dominance and in the previous games, where we’ve missed some sitters [then we’re in trouble]. We’ve got to be more clinical, players have got to be more adventurous in the penalty box. Try to make the opponents make a mistake.

“We’ve been in a position where we get wide, we get into the box, but there’s nothing from it. Even the passes into the box were not to our players. It was just hopeful football, hoping that someone will get to the end of it.

“In training sessions, the way we play and the way we train, the chances we create and the chances we score are unbelievable.”

Kaizer Chiefs and Swallows have only ever met on three previous occasions with both Amakhosi and the Dube Birds claiming one win each while the only other match as ended in a draw.

Ruzaigh Gamildien will be relishing the chance to cap the campaign off in style and add to the five league goals his already scored this season, with his last goal coming in their thrilling 2-2 draw against SuperSport United at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium on 6 May.
