Vereeniging - Veteran Moroka Swallows striker Siyabonga Nomvethe has expressed disappointment towards his team-mates following their humiliating loss to Jomo Cosmos over the weekend.
Cosmos humbled the Dube Birds 4-1 in their NFD and PSL relegation/promotion playoffs encounter at Vaal University of Technology Stadium on Sunday.
The 38-year-old goal poacher grabbed a consolation goal for the Soweto giants while strikes from Brice Aka, Thabo Ralebakeng, and a brace from Charlton Mashumba were sufficient to send Ezinkosi to the summit of the mini-log table.
“Bhele” said it was very embarrassing for a club like Swallows to lose in that manner, considering how they performed in their last playoffs game against Black Leopards.
Nomvethe believes they lost the game because they failed to stick to their game plan.
“I am very disappointed with the way we performed,” said Nomvethe.
“It is very embarrassing to lose with a score line like that considering how we played in our last game.
“I thought that it would at least be a draw if things didn’t go our way in the game.
“But the way we played wasn’t good at all and the way we gave everything was very unpleasant to our supporters.
“I don’t understand why because we have let our supporters down with our performance.
“We didn’t play according to what we planned before the game and to be honest with you, I really don’t understand what kind of football we were playing.”
Despite the three teams, including Leopards, being level on points, a loss for the Birds sent them to the bottom of the mini-log table due to their inferior goal difference.
Swallows will be looking to keep their Absa Premiership survival hopes alive when they travel to Thohoyandou for their clash against Leopards on Sunday.
