Revenge was sweet for Swallows


Strikes from Bevan Fransman and Sandile Ndlovu paved the way for Swallows to gain sweet revenge on Amakhosi who booted them out of Telkom Knockout Cup after a penalty shootout at Loftus Stadium earlier this season.

Speaking to Kick Off, Prins said his team deserved their win yesterday, especially after dominating the game for almost 70 minutes. However, he was quick to add that it was still too early to be confident of his team's chances of winning the League title this season.

"We played nice football and I think we deserved to win even though we almost threw the game away in the last 15 minutes when we allowed Chiefs to come back at us.

"I'm happy with the way the team is playing but I won't put pressure on the players and technical team to win the title."

Prins refused to comment on red cards that were received by Bevan Fransman and Japhet Zwane during the game.

"Ï am not the referee; he is the only one who can comment on the matter."

Kaizer Chiefs' coach Muhsin Ertugral came down harshly on his team's defence.

"Every time the ball was put behind our defence, we were punished. We lost concentration at times and our positioning at the back was not good.

"I think my team was not aggressive enough to win the game yesterday. Whatever happened, we have to put it behind us and focus on our next game against Celtic in the Telkom Cup," he adds.
