“We should have got the fourth after getting the third to make it 4-1 and completely out of sight,” Manousakis said.

“There were a lot of those moments, but we didn’t take those opportunities and we let them through the back door. They’re definitely the happier of the two teams.”

Meanwhile, Swallows will be looking to continue from where they left off before the break. As they are unbeaten in their last three games in the DSTV Premiership.

Amaswais are 14th in the league standings – two points above the relegation zone. And the club have since appointed Ernst Middendorp as their new head coach.

The Swallows battled to a 1-1 draw at SuperSport United in their last league game on October 30 and assistant coach Musa Nayatama was pleased to see his charges execute their game plan.

“We fought. It’s unfortunate that we didn’t win the game. But our execution of the game plan was good,” Nayatama said.

“We knew they would try to score from crosses or set-pieces. I was disappointed with the set-pieces we gave up. But going forward the boys will learn.”

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Richards Bay

Luvuyo Memela: The experienced winger, who has a knack for creating and scoring goals, had an assist against Chippa. Memela has the ability to single-handedly inspire the rich boys to victory against the Swallows.

Somila Ntsundwana: The towering marksman grabbed a brace against Chippa to take his tally to three goals in the current campaign. And will be looking to use his physicality and great strength to unsettle the Swallows defence.

Swallows FC

Lindokuhle Motsali: The diminutive attacker grabbed the morale-boosting goal against Supersport and it was his first goal of the season. Matsali’s explosive runs and dribbling skills will cause problems for the Richards Bay backline.

Mwape Musonda: The Zambian international has slowly regained his old form before the recent break. And is Swallows’ top scorer this term with three goals and he could lead Amswaiswai to victory in Durban.
