Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter has warned against underestimating Moroka Swallows in their Nedbank Cup Last 32 clash on Tuesday.

Baxter remains cautious of the beleaguered Swallows, who are currently rooted to the bottom of the NFD table.

After being touted as title challengers at the start of the season, the star-studded Matsatsantsa have one last chance for silverware in the cup competition.

"The preparations are the same as for a PSL game. The importance of this game to the squad is high," Baxter told KickOff.

"In terms of winning something, this is their (players) opportunity to prove that they are better than the results this season.

"Beware the man with nothing to lose. The difference between us and Swallows is not that great.

"I don't think the players should be fooled. If we go there with a wrong attitude it would be disappointing.

"We have to prepare well and make sure that we are not playing against a team that is in turmoil."
