The Premiership resumed this week following the recent
two-month break, and the Brazilians hit the ground running as a brace from
Cuthbert Malajila, a goal from Alje Schut and Modise's long-range free-kick
secured all three points against the Dube Birds.
And, with the result having cut Kaizer Chiefs' lead at the
top of the standings down to 13 points, Modise is hoping they can repeat their
achievement from last term when they overcame a 12-point deficit to eventually
surpass Amakhosi to the top-flight crown.
Modise told his official website: "Like I said the
challenge of defending our title has begun. It is only the first match but I
can tell you that the players are hungry and are looking for success.
"The game against Swallows has boosted the confidence
in the team and everyone is excited to be back with a bang.
“I think we played according to the coach's instructions and
made the correct decisions as players on the field.
"We killed the game in the first half and went about it
professionally all the way until the final whistle.
“It felt super great to score a goal and help the team
“It indeed was a good goal, one I can watch over and over
again. This has given me confidence to do more in front of goals."
