Truter: They're a difficult opponent

Brandon Truter and Lehlogonolo Matlou

AmaZulu coach Brandon Truter understands the threat his former side Swallows will pose when the two sides clash at Dobsonville Stadium tonight.

Usuthu are unberaten sinde Truter's arrival and are up to seventh place on the DStv Premiership standings with 36 points from 26 games.

The Dube Birds are down in 15th position with just 23 points, and a point adrift of Martizburg United in 14th and safety.

Speaking ahead of the game, Truter said in the Sowetan: "It's going to be a difficult one.

"Except for Swallows being my former team, they're a team that are now playing for survival.

"They need to win, they're fighting, so they're a difficult opponent."

Truter added: "It's seven out of [possible] nine points at this moment. We like to continue our unbeaten streak.

"We like to continue not conceding. It's away from home but we're going there full of confidence, wanting all the points. It's a thick opponent to face at this stage."
