17 Dec 21:07

17 Dec 20:56
67' - Swallows causing Pirates more problems this half, they have a corner but it's not a great one and Pirates clear easily. 
17 Dec 20:52
65' - Promising attack for Swallows, the ball comes to Nomvethe but he had strayed just offside.  Close call that.

52' - A promising Pirates attack breaks down again.  They had four men up in the box on that occasion, searching for the equaliser.
17 Dec 20:38

17 Dec 20:33

17 Dec 19:58
27' - Free kick to Swallows on the left hand side of the big box, promising position for the them. Floated in towards Isaacs, he rises unchallenged but cannot keep his header down and it sails over the bar.  He should have done better there!
