“Does that mean that we have an excuse to have a day off against Swallows? Certainly not, we will put out a team that will win the game.
“We had a meeting with the players, where I said to them that if anybody thinks there is an excuse, they should not come to the game.
“Kaizer Chiefs know how we are going to play, and we know how Swallows play. It’s going to be a good competitive game. It’s a derby and we want it to be treated in that way.
“Kaizer Chiefs are up for it. It has been a challenge and the players have got to answer that challenge. We are not going to be doing anything we don’t know against Swallows.”
