Birds expect tough encounter tonight


The two clubs are vying for a spot in the Last 16 of the Nedbank Cup at Charles Mopeli Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Kick off is at 20h00.

The match, initially scheduled for Saturday, March 15, was one of two Nedbank Cup games postponed due to waterlogged pitches over the weekend.

_quoteSwallows are in fine form, having won their last three Absa Premiership matches, and will be looking to continue that form against Warriors.

However, star midfielder Lefa Tsutsulupa is anticipating a tough encounter against the First Division Inland Stream side.

“As you know, First Division football is different to that in the Absa Premiership. There, they run a lot and they don’t give you time on the ball,” Tsutsulupa told the official Swallows’ website.

“We will approach the game differently and we will exercise caution at all times. We don’t want to see what happened to Wits to happen to us as well.

"We’ll give Warriors the respect they deserve, but at the same time we’ll be looking at taking every chance that comes our way.”
