Moroka Swallows registered their first victory in this year’s DStv Premiership after a controversial own goal deep into injury time saw them run out 2-1 winners against Sekhukhune United.   

Swallows struck first, scoring through Lindokuhle Mtshali in the 16th minute, but Sekhukhune drew level thanks to Chibuike Ohizu’s goal just 10 minutes later. 

It was Steve Komphela’s side that dominated the match statistics, registering 13 shots (3 on target) and having more possession (55%) than the home side.

It took a controversial decision in the 94th minute to separate the sides when Sekhukhune goalkeeper Badra Ali Sangaré collected a cross, only to be pushed over his own line by Gabadinho Mhango.

The referee, however, ruled that Sangare had carried the ball over and was not fouled and awarded the goal despite protests from the Sekhukhune players.

The win sees Swallows move up to 6th on the log with 4 points while Sekhukhune is in 8th position on 3 points.
