The 34-year-old Cheeseboy has personally faced Chiefs many times in his career, while still in the books of Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town between 2003 and 2017.
“It’s always exciting to come up against Chiefs because of the expectations from the fans. For me, it’s about sharing my experience with the guys that will be playing against Chiefs for the first time in the top-flight,’’ said Mokwena.
Going into this game, Swallows are second on the log after winning two of their four opening league games with two draws as well. Chiefs are 11th on the table with five points, three behind Swallows, having lost once and managed two draws, plus one win.
“It’s always a tricky one when you play Chiefs because they’re a team that can rise on any day. They mightn’t have played well in the past games, but they can turn the corner any time. So it’s about us, Swallows, to be focused and not dwell on their past games,’’ stated Mokoena.
