SuperSport United travel to Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday evening for a date with Swallows FC in the DStv Premiership.
Teams: Swallows FC v SuperSport United
Date: 28 January 2023
Venue: Dobsonville Stadium
SuperSport's surge in form has slowed down since their 2-1 loss to Golden Arrows in early January, as they are yet to win in three games following a 1-1 draw with Richards Bay last weekend.
Matsatsantsa, as a result, have fallen further behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns by 21 points in third place on the log, although they could climb above Richards Bay in second place if they get back to winning ways.
Swallows' fortunes, meanwhile, have not immediately changed since Ernst Middendorp took over, as the German has only managed only one win in five matches, with three defeats in the process.
