A disappointed Swallows FC head coach Brandon Truter said on Sunday that his side should have still clinched a win against Cape Town City despite being reduced to 10 men.

Kgaogelo Sekgota's opener was canceled out by CT City midfielder Mduduzi Mdantsane's penalty before Swallows midfielder Junaid Sait received a red card in the 66th minute.

The Cape Town-born Truter said despite being reduced to ten men, his side had opportunities to claim all three points at the Cape Town Stadium.

"It was a difficult game, made difficult by certain decisions, be it from my players or the officials, Truter told SuperSport TV post-match.

"Who put us with our backs against the wall? Lakay made the same tackle earlier and received a yellow, then we get a red card.

"Even with a man down I think (Thabo) Mosadi should have scored and we should've taken the three points today."

Truter added that his side had done well in taking points off the Citizens while reminding everyone that Swallows remained unbeaten after 16 matches.

"Four points home and away off City is good.

"People might be speaking about our number of draws but we are still unbeaten.

"We have to put it in perspective, we're a new team. Tactically we can compete with anybody in this league.

"Man for man the quality is there and we can still improve and in this game we had chances to snatch the win today and City didn't really threaten us.

"I think we did well coming here, other team's unbeaten run was broken here while we're still intact.

"But we're not relying on remaining unbeaten, we came here to win and we scored first but due to circumstances unfortunately, we'll take the point.
