Swallows Thrash Pirates...
Moroka Swallows proved they are up for a title challenge this season by demolishing champions Orlando Pirates in their own backyard on Saturday night.
The Dube Birds put up a serious fight during the 2011/12 Absa Premiership campaign, but ultimately lost out to Bucs at the business end of the season.
Many have written off the Dobsonville Stadium side's chances this time around following the departure of coach Gordon Igesund to the Bafana Bafana fold, but judging by their performance at the Orlando Stadium, they are sure to be amongst the challengers come May 2013.
Pirates had no answer to Zeca Marques' charges on the night, with goals from Mpho Maleka and former Bucs stars Katlego Mashego and Bennett Chenene ensuring the three points stayed with Swallows.
Advantage Dube Birds!
