Swallows and Cape Town Metropolis performed out to a 0-0 map during their DStv Premiership match at Dobsonville Stadium in what used to be the simplest match performed on Heritage Day.
As a results of this share of the spoils, Metropolis hang moved one situation to ninth on the log standings with 5 points from four matches whereas Swallows hang moved from twelfth to tenth with 5 points from as many matches.
They hang no longer considered the final of every other as they meet again on Wednesday during the MTN8 semi-final, second leg in Soweto where Metropolis will hang a shrimp wait on having denied Swallows an away intention in Cape Town in the first leg.
Both sets of avid gamers did no longer duvet themselves in glory in this low key match that used to be watched by Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos and his assistants Cedomir Janevski and Helman Mkhalele.
Swallows return to league action next weekend with a difficult outing against defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus whereas Metropolis’s next league match is against Sekhukhune United at Ellis Park in a fortnight.
The first staunch famous likelihood of the match came after 25 minutes when Swallows player Khethukuthula Ndlovu unleashed a extremely effective shot from outside the box but Metropolis goalkeeper Hugo Marques used to be equal to the task.
A few minutes later, Swallows had another replacement to interrupt the deadlock but Junaid Sait’s shut range header used to be serene by Marques after the Swallows defender connected with a free-kick from his captain Lebohang Mokoena.
It used to be no longer all Swallows as Metropolis moreover had their moments on the assault with Fagrie Lakay, Bradley Ralani, Mduduzi Mdantsane and Abdul Ajagun but they could well presumably no longer find their past house crew goalkeeper Virgil Vries.
They went at every other in the second half of and there had been no targets to hang time but something need to give on Wednesday as there could well presumably serene be a winner in the second leg of their semi-final.
