Swallows ultimately lost the fixture, courtesy of an own-goal from Rudi Isaacs during the first stanza. However, Madida thinks that his players were in control for large parts of the match and probably deserved a point, at the very least.
"We dominated the match today but were unlucky with our finishing and on another day we would have won the match," said Madida after the defeat.
"We took the game to them and they were just catching us on the breaks," added Madida, who feels that his players were the aggressors on the day.
Nevertheless, the result does place Moroka Swallows in somewhat of a quandary at this juncture, as they are now in the relegation zone, at what is essentially a critical stage of the season.
Madida still thinks that his team will emerge unscathed though.
"These boys have too much mental strength and despite losing they are still raring to go and one of these days this team will start beating teams."
The result sees Stars move to 14th place on the log with 21 points, while Swallows drop to 15th on 18 points.
