Cape Town - Bottom-placed National First Division side Moroka Swallows face the possibility of relegation to the ABC Mostepe League ahead of the 2016/17 season.

The Dube Birds have endured a torrid season in South Africa's second tier and are currently languishing in 16th position, with two games left to be played this season.

The fallen Soweto Giants were relegated in the 2014/15 Premiership season for the first time in their history, finishing 15th and losing out to Black Leopards in their promotion/relegation play-off tie.

Swallows have accumulated a mere 23 points from a possible 84, having only registered five wins and 15 losses thus far.

The relegation-threatened outfit will face Thanda Royal Zulu on Sunday at the Dobsonville Stadium, before traveling to face Witbank Spurs a week later on 22 May.
