The Warriors international warned recently that while the best of him as a defender could have been seen, the main task now was to hit the back of the net more frequently.

The 30-year-old headed in the only goal in the Mamelodi Sundowns-Kaizer Chiefs duel at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium last Sunday. It was his 70th appearance for the Club since he joined the Amakhosi in August 2009.

“I was happy to score my first goal for Kaizer Chiefs and it was very special that it was a winner in such a big game,” he said. “It was a tough game playing Sundowns at Loftus, their home ground. We wanted nothing less than three points in Pretoria and I am happy that we achieved our goal as a team.”

He is now determined to juggle defending and goal scoring.

“My first priority on the field is to stop goals being scored against us. I do think the goal has opened doors for me to score more goals for the team. I am sure I am going to get a few more goals this season,” added the Gweru-born central defender.

His fourth-placed Glamour Boys host Free State Stars, a rung above them on the ABSA Premiership log, at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night. Should they win, whatever happens in the Pretoria derby between pacesetters Supersport United and Sundowns will widen their chances of winning their first league trophy in seven years.

Should Sundowns lose, a Chiefs’ victory will see Sweswe and his team mates get second position. A Sundowns’ win will see a victorious Amakhosi close the gap at the top to within one point.
