Swallows win boosts Bucks out of drop zone
Mthatha Bucks showed great character to come from a goal down to beat Moroka Swallows 2-1 at the Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
It was the Birds who scored first, Boysen Mbatha heading his side in front after 25 minutes. But Amathol'amnyama were back in business just before the half time break thanks to a Moses Spandeel goal.
Substitute Sibongiseni Madikane then proved to be the match winner as he netted 20 minutes from time.
The win boosts Bucks clear of the relegation zone for the first time this season, taking them above both African Warriors and FC Cape Town, although that could change on Sunday when those two teams play.
