Cape Town – Moroka Swallows coach Fani Madida admits that he needs to make some kind of change following their recent defeat to University of Pretoria in the Nedbank Cup.

According to KickOff, Madida confessed that his Sowetan side were simply not good enough on the night and seeks to hit the refresh button.

"Not much from my side, we were not good enough to win, that is all," Madida said

"It is not giving us opportunity to see other players so it is a bit of a struggle now. We will only see them in friendly games which doesn't have the same sort of intensity like the Nedbank Cup offers, which is a negative.

"We need to try and see them in friendly games because we have to refresh the team."

The Dube Birds find themselves anchored closely to the relegation zone in 14th position and now have a 10-day gap before their next Premiership game.

Madida and Swallows will look to climb away from the red-hot zone when they face fellow PSL strugglers Platinum Stars.

The match is scheduled for Sunday, March 8 at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
