Swallows picked up a vital point in their quest to beat the drop as they clinched a 1-1 draw against Pretoria University at Tuks Stadium on Tuesday night.

Vuyisile Wana gave the visitors a slender half-time lead, before Atusaye Nyondo struck home four minutes into the second half to set up a tense final half-hour.

In the post match interview, Nomvete says that the result was not something they had wanted because of the position that they find themselves in.

"As players we are very disappointed because were aware that we had to pick up the three points, but it just happened that we ended up at 1-1.

"I think we lost the concentration at the back, that's why they got the equaliser.

"We have to fix the problem [it's not the first time] it happened today," he added.
