Cape Town - Moroka
Swallows head coach Craig Rosslee believes his side's 4-1 humbling at the hands
of Jomo Cosmos on Sunday was down to them not having the right mentality.

Cosmos were desperate for a win to get their PSL
promotion-relegation playoff campaign back on track after an opening-round loss
to Black Leopards, and it showed at the Isak Steyl Stadium this weekend.
Swallows began the game full of confidence having
comfortably beaten Leopards in their first playoff game, and looked like they
believed they could beat Cosmos just by being there.
However, the Soweto outfit, who have never been relegated during
the PSL era, were brought crashing back to earth by a ruthless Ezenkosi outfit,
with the result leaving all three sides level on three points.
"We came here and thought we could win the game with
the wrong mentality," Rosslee told KickOff.
"We had to have the right attitude and mentality... and
we didn't have that today and we got punished duly for it.
"We can't concede that amount of goals with five at the
back. When we concede goals like that its sacrilege.”
Cosmos now top the table on goal difference, with the Dube
Birds moving from first to last after the result.
The race is tightly poised at the halfway stage and all
three of the sides involved will have to fight hard to earn the right to play
in the Premiership next season.
