Cape Town - Moroka Swallows coach Craig Roslee would rather be playing against the likes of Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns at this stage of the season.

The Dube Birds are currently involved in a massive battle to remain in the Premiership along with the likes of AmaZulu and Free State Stars.
Swallows' cause will not be easy as they will be facing teams that still have a lot to play for, a factor which worries Roslee.
Their remaining matches are against Maritzburg United (home), Ajax Cape Town (away) and Bloemfontein Celtic (home).
Celtic are gunning for a top-8 finish while Ajax are in top form after they booked a spot in the Nedbank Cup, while Maritzburg have recently beaten both those teams.
"You rather play against Chiefs or Sundowns because the league is done and dusted for them," Roslee told African Football.
"The rest are still fighting for a top eight spot and jostling for places really. Celtic are in good nick, Ajax are in good nick with the Nedbank Cup and Maritzburg have had one or two good results, tough games."
