Johannesburg - Gordon Igesund hopes to record his 200th managerial victory when Moroka Swallows resume their title push against struggling Santos on 15 February.

The four-time PSL winner, however, insists the three points on offer outweighs the significance of any personal milestone.

"These kinds of records are for statisticians and not really for me. From a personal point of view I did not know that I played over 700 games and won almost 200 of them," he told his club's website.

"Maybe after I've retired, I will look back and look at these stats and you say that you have worked for something. For now, every win is important to us, whether it's the 500th or 200th win or your first win, I just go along doing my job the way it should be done.

"I'm trying to be the best I can be at all times and continue to build a competitive team and a team that believe in themselves and that's what we've done."

Igesund added that Swallows' squad depth has helped them this season, as they currently lie fourth in the Premier Soccer League standings with 26 points - five less than leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

He said: "The good thing is that I've got two players in each position and I am not trying to change players' styles we've tried to make sure that the team we've got play to their strengths.

"I've been very fortunate that when one player is off out another comes in. It's only the injuries and suspensions that hurt the team."
