Johannesburg - Moroka Swallows' golden boy Siyabonga Nomvethe is confident the team has the ability to pip Orlando Pirates to the PSL title this season.

Nomvethe has been a revelation for the Dube Birds this term, with his brace in Friday night's 5-2 victory over Black Leopards taking the striker to 18 Premiership goals for the campaign.

The win was also enough to hoist the Soweto giants to second in the standings, two points behind the Buccaneers with just two games remaining.

"Swallows are still in the running and have a pretty good chance," Bhele, as he is affectionately known, told The Sowetan.

"We deserve to be in the race for the league title."

Swallows' bid for the PSL title may be something that is out of their own hands, given the fact they will need Pirates to slip up in order to overtake them at the top. But Nomvethe says the team remain focused solely on their own final two matches of the season.

"We are not worried about what Pirates or Sundowns are doing," he added. "We are left with two games against Platinum Stars and Maritzburg United to complete the league season. Our aim is to win both to intensify our challenge.

"This has been an incredible season for us."

    Yes, nomvete, stones here can be turned to be bread. Impossiblity to the other people can be possibility to the others.

    u can win both your games but as long as pirates wins, u wont get the league, its jus nt in your hands, get it?

    You have got to hand it to Gordon Iglesund. He took the team over last year and helped them not being relegated and now they have a strong challenge to be crowned PSL Champions. Maybe we should start looking at someone like him to take Bafana Bafana to the next level.

      Could not agree with you more. I think Pitso has reached the ceiling and perhaps someone like Gordon can take Bafana to the next level, he certainly has the calibre to do it

    I'm a Bucs fan but if we can lose just one game, you definately are going to take it. But not Sundowns.
