SWALLOWS FRUSTRATE BLUNT ARROWS

Lamontville Golden Arrows were held to a 0-0 draw by Swallows FC in the DStv Premiership match which was played at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Despite the draw, Abafana Bes’thende climbed up to eighth place on the league standings, while Amaswaiswai also moved up to the 12th spot on the log.

Most of the possession was played in the middle of the park with Lungelo Dube battling with Given Khupe for control of the midfield and there were no clear-cut chances in the opening stages.

Andile Fikizolo became a busy man for Arrows as the game progressed and he was delivering crosses into the Swallows box for Knox Mutizwa, but the visitors’ defence did well to clear away aerial balls.

Fikizolo continued to unsettle the Amaswaiswai defence with his speed and he had a chance to score from the box in the 37th minute, but his attempt was well saved by goalkeeper Jody February.

The score was 0-0 during the halftime break following a first-half which had first-half few chances.

Abafana Bes’thende continued to control the game after the restart and they were unlucky not to score when Mutizwa hit the crossbar six minutes before the hour-mark with February well-beaten.

Swallows head coach Brandon Truter introduced 2018/19 PSL Golden Boot award winner Mwape Musonda just after the hour-mark as the visitors looked to break the deadlock.

However, Amaswaiswai could not create goalscoring opportunities for the Zambia international, who was tightly marked by Abafana Bes’thende’s experienced centre back Wandisile Letlabika.

Ultimately, the match ended in a 0-0 draw with the two teams unable to create clear cut opportunities in the closing stages of the encounter and they shared the spoils on the night.
