Downs who have managed to scoop 13 points in five league fixtures and are yet to concede a goal in the league.

Their opponent's Swallows who come to Sunday fixture with open wounds after suffering a 4-0 defeat against CT City FC during MTN 8 semi-finals as they exited the tournament.

Downs defender Rushin De Reuck has shared his views about their upcoming game against The Birds and identified them as a tough opponent.

I think Swallows is a very structured team, they a very difficult to play against,” De Reuck told the club’s media department.

They keep many, many clean sheets so we know it’s not gonna be easy game. So it’s gonna be very important for us to try and break them down, and create chances against them, like I said they’re structured.

“But I know that if we apply ourselves really well in the game I know that we will be able to do that.”


However, the Brazilians head into the match with confidence and have no room for ignorance, and won't take their opponents for granted based on their previous results.

Peter Shalulile and Thabiso Kutumela will be two players to watch in these games as they have been troublesome in front of goals and possess more goalscoring opportunities.

Last seasonoth teams couldn't failed to dock points from each other were in both fixtures ended as a draw.
