Moroka Swallows (15th)
Last five games: LWDLD
Maswaiswai's side haven’t had a great start to the season, with four wins in the last eighteen games. Moroka Swallows secured their fourth win of the season against a strong Chippa United but have failed to win any of their previous three games. They suffered another away defeat as they were beaten by Sekhukhune United. The host's goal in the 62nd minute was enough to secure them all the points.
More recently, Moroka Swallows held Supersport to a goalless draw at home. It was an impressive performance; however, the result further indicates how poor their attacking players were.
The Birds are three points ahead of the relegation zone, picking up eighteen points from a possible fifty-four. Maswaiswai have won four, drawn two and lost three in the last nine home matches.
Richards Bay (2nd)
Last five games: DWLWD
The Natal Rich Boys failed to expand their lead in the second spot on the log as they struggled to secure a point against Amazulu FC. After firing eighteen total shots, Richards Bay had to wait till the 94th minute to obtain a point against the visitors. Richards Bay have lost three times this season, and all were against top sides.
Natal Rich Boys have been incredible so far this season, with eight wins, seven draws and three losses. Their biggest strength lies in their defence, with ten goals conceded (the second in the league). Richards Bay have won five, drawn three and lost once in the last nine away matches.
