The draw however means that Swallows remain locked on 26 points with Sundowns. Naturally, Truter is left unhappy.
“Disappointed, very disappointed in the result and the fact we conceded,” Truter told SuperSport TV.
“We scored early and then took our foot off the peddle. But that is also to do with the accumulation and tiredness.
“We failed to kill off the team. It is taxing. But we will take the point. The chances … I don’t blame the boys, we remain undefeated, but looking at our next opponents you would have wanted to get the three points here and we didn’t.”
Swallows now have to prepare for Saturday’s 15h30 kick-off against champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
“There are 48 hours to our next game, we have to get ready, to prepare mentally and physically. It is a tough ask with our opponents having had an extra rest day and us struggling to put our best XI on the park, but we will look forward to it.
“The boys are fighters, they have a good mentality and I am sure they will feel disappointed with the result today.” He said.
Truter will be hoping to have key players back from injury for that crunch tie on Saturday.
“Sammy came in and did well, but you know he [Mokoena] has been around the block and he knows how to manage the game.
“’Cheeseboy’ would be a welcome return if he is fit to play on Saturday. We are working around the clock to get everybody ready for the next game.” The coach concluded
