Swallows FC will have themselves to blame for failing to register their first win in nine matches. The Birds needed a late equaliser to settle for a 1-1 draw against Golden Arrows in a match that they completely dominated in Dobsonville earlier on Saturday afternoon.
Arrows, who are second on the DSTV Premiership, still trail log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns by three points, having played three extra matches.

Swallows are still sixth on the log after 20 matches.
Swallows were looking for their first win since February when they defeated Baroka FC 1-0. They had drawn seven league games, and also lost once against TS Galaxy in the past few weeks.
Swallows went into this match lying sixth on the log with 32 points from 19 matches.
The Birds came up against a high flying Arrows who have won six and drawn twice in their last eight matches.
Swallows were the better of the two sides in the first half, but fluffed a number of scoring chances. Zaphaniah Mobokane wasted a glorious chance to score midway through the opening half after a defensive blunder.
A few minutes later, Kamohelo Mahlatsi failed to put the home side in the lead and it was goalless at the break.
Swallows, who played without their suspended leading marksman Ruzaigh Gamildien, struggled upfront missing another opportunity to break the deadlock a few minutes after restart.
It took just over an hour for Arrows to produce their best chance to score, but Zimbabwean Knox Mutizwa failed to connect with a cross from the left.
Swallows got a free kick on the edge of the box but a shot from Kagiso Malinga went narrowly wide.
But the visitors took the lead twenty minutes from time through Seth Parusnath from a counter attack.
When everyone expected Arrows go collect maximum points, Swallows captain Vuyo Mere came from nowhere to grab the equaliser deep in injury time.
