Johannesburg - Moroka Swallows midfielder Lucky Baloyi has revealed that his teammates went out to prove a point to the South African football fraternity that they could stop Kaizer Chiefs winning streak, despite their recent poor performance.

The Dube Birds held the Phefeni Glamour Boys to a 1-all stalemate in the PSL match played at the FNB stadium last night.

Baloyi found the back of the net for Fani Madida’s men in the first half, before Reneilwe Letsholonyane leveled matters after the interval.

"We wanted to show people that although we are not doing well so far, we can hold them," said Baloyi.

"We knew Chiefs will attack, we told ourselves that we shouldn't be scared.

"And we managed to break their winning streak."

The Mokopane-born player is currently on a season-long loan deal from Chiefs.

Swallows would take the result as a morale booster heading to their next league match against the wounded Platinum Stars next Friday.
