Swallows FC coach Brandon Truter says that his charges could well have won their DStv Premiership clash against SuperSport United.

Lucky Mohomi opened up the scoring in what was Matsatsansta's 1000 goal in top flight football before Joseph Mhlongo came off the bench to secure a vital point for the Soweto side.

The stalemate sees SuperSport remain second while Swallows hold onto third place with both sides on 27 points.

“Look it’s a point away from home against SuperSport, it’s a point last week away from home against Sundowns as well. These are the kinds of results you need to get away from home,” Truter told SuperSport TV.

“I’m just proud of the boys for the effort they gave. We found our rhythm after the goal, we settled a bit, we found the spaces, we opened them up and created numerous opportunities but decision making in the final third let us down.

In the second half I think it was toe-to-toe they could’ve snatched it; we could’ve snatched it but otherwise it’s a point away against SuperSport, we’ll take it.”

SuperSport's next league match is against Bloemfontein Celtic while Swallows take on AmaZulu.
