THE PRESSURE IS ON SUNDOWNS – TRUTER
“It’s forty eight hours to our next game, fatigued, tired legs… we are not in the position like our opponents for the next game.” Swallows FC head coach Brandon Truter said ahead of today’s clash.
“Mamelodi Sundowns can rotate with all the quality that they have so it’s a massive task for the technical team to get the best possible eleven available for Saturday.
“They are still league title contenders, I maintain and they are our next game but we also know that they had an extra day to rest it plays a huge part. People don’t know the human body takes 72 hours to recover and they had 72 hours where we only had 48 hours. So, the pressure is on them, they should win it.”
