Swallows FC coach Brandon Truter says his side improved in the second half of their 1-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs where Joseph Mhlongo netted a late goal.
Both sides struggled to settle into a rhythm at Dobsonvile Stadium on Tuesday night, with the game set to be heading for a goalless draw, after Daniel Cardoso had a goal ruled out.
But Mhlongo popped up with four minutes to play to hand Swallows all three points.
The result saw the Dube Birds end the evening in first place on the Dstv Premiership standings, with 11 points from five games.
Chiefs are, meanwhile, down in 11 place with five points from their five games.
After the game, Truter told SuperSport: "What an awful game to watch in the first half, But I think it was the excitement, it's our first season back in the PSL, we do have experienced guys but the youngsters were excited, got carried away by the occasion, it's Chiefs, not just another game.
"It showed, it was long ball after long ball, me and Gavin [Hunt] had a go at one another, 'what game is this we're watching?'
"But ja we managed to settle in the second half, calmed them down, told them to enforce the structure and keep the ball better. So ja second half was more better, I'm just happy for Joe [Joseph Mhlongo], came back from a long lay-off, didn't have much of pre-season, we wanted to give him 20 minutes, well he scored the goal."
