Sundowns – Busy like bees, but no sting!
Former Mamelodi Sundowns star Zane Moosa summed up his old team perfectly, saying they were busy like bees but had no sting in their 1-0 loss to Moroka Swallows.
Swallows won the Absa Premiership encounter thanks to a 37th minute penalty by Siyabonga Nomvete. This, after Method Mwanjale had fouled David Mathebula and was sent for an early shower.

“Sometimes it looks likes Sundowns are playing possession football only. I think they need to play to score goals too,” Moosa said.
“They simply do not create enough scoring chances for the amount of ball possession they have.
“I do not think Sundowns put enough pressure on the Swallows defence, which I think is not the strongest central defence around.
“The fact that Roger Da Costa (central defence) got Man of the Match for Swallows shows me that Sundowns did not really put enough pressure on Swallows.”
The win takes Swallows to 10th on the table with 25 points while Sundowns slip to 11th with 23 points.
