Ernst Middendorp suffered defeat in his opening two games as Swallows coach, although those defeats came against Richards Bay FC and Mamelodi Sundowns who are the top two sides in the league.

The defeat to Sundowns on Tuesday night has left the Dube Birds in 15th position on league standings, but a win could take the side up to 12th spot.
