Cape Town - SuperSport United midfielder Lebogang Manyama says his side will show no mercy against relegation threatened Moroka Swallows when the sides clash this weekend.

Matsatsantsa are out to consolidate their position in the top-eight while the Dube Birds are rock bottom on the Premiership standings.

Manyama has moved to send an early warning to Craig Rosslee's men ahead of the meeting at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

"I think at this stage of the season, there are no easy games," he told Football411.

"We are out to consolidate our top-eight spot but Swallows are going to be tough because of their current position.

"They basically have nothing to lose so they will go all out and throw everything at us.

"But we are also a team on the rise, been doing well after a bad start to our season and now we've got our campaign back on track.

"We want to keep the good results coming."

The 24-year-old has also heaped praise on coach Gordon Igesund, who replaced Cavin Johnson and changed their fortunes around by first wining the Telkom Knockout trophy and then clawing their way up the league standings, while they are also through to the Nedbank Cup semi-finals.

"We all know Gordon is a good coach and what his one since arriving is evident," he continued.

"We've got a good quality squad with some really good experienced players, so he's managed to come in and find the balance between the experienced and the youth and so far it's working.

"I've just recently returned from injury so I'm just as happy to play my part also.

"He's done a great job and look at us now, we have eyes on a cup double, and we are also on the verge of consolidating out top-eight spot."
