When the two clubs meet in the MTN8 quarter-finals on Saturday at Orlando Stadium, Swallows FC coach Brandon Truter has warned Orlando Pirates that they would not be afraid of them.

“We have a certain amount of arrogance here in our playing style which we do not change. We are not scared to say this is how we play and you adapt to what you want to do against us,” said Truter.

“We will not have the mindset that when we are away to look for a draw. That’s not in our DNA, that’s not in our culture," said the coach.

The Swallows coach has promised that their match versus the Buccaneers will be exciting. Both Swallows and Pirates, according to Truter, are ball-playing teams with good personnel.

Last season, the teams met after Swallows' promotion to the DStv Premiership, and they were inseparable, coming to two 1-1 draws in the league. The competition, on the other hand, will require a winner on the day, with the winning team advancing to the tournament's semi-finals.
