Swallows FC coach eyes victory over Chiefs

Swallows FC coach Brandon Truter says he is expecting an open game when his side clashes with Kaizer Chiefs in their crucial DStv Premiership fixture on Wednesday.

Victory for The Birds could take them as high as third in the table and into the CAF Confederation Cup qualification places, while and win for Chiefs could see them shoot into the top eight.

It is also a Soweto Derby and so bragging rights are up for grabs, but most important on the mind of both sides will be the points.

“It is a special game, people will sit up and look at it. As much as Chiefs need a win, so do we,” Truter said.

“With us, I wouldn’t say there is any special preparation but mental prep is more important for us at this stage. If you look at our amount of draws, we need the win just as much.

“Of course, we’ve got different objectives, they want to get into the top eight; we want to get into spots for Africa or finish as high as possible in our first season.

“Chiefs are a special team with special players that can change the game, and we have to be mindful of those players.

“It is their home game, they will have to win, come out and open up but we know what to expect from Chiefs and we know their key players, so we’ll plan accordingly.”
