Swallows FC head coach Brandon Truter says his central defenders had an easy job against Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday evening.
The DStv Premiership debutants recorded their 17th draw of the season after Kagiso Malinga's strike was cancelled out by Leonardo Castro.
Even though Castro got on the score-sheet, the Swallows boss feels his central defenders did well to stifle the Colombian and Samir Nurkovic, who came on in the second half.
"The goal we conceded it was just poor reaction from us in the penalty area," Truter told SuperSport after the game.
"We weren't at our best so yes people will say it's another draw but teams around us have been losing. We're gaining a point. Bit frustrating. We could have done better. We weren't at our optimal level. Even our centre-backs I think the job was easy for them against Castro. Even when Nurkovic came on as well.
"The lack of quality in the final third is what let us down. Decision making when we wanted to bring that ball out, when we wanted to go to the wings as well. We forced it a little bit and then gave possession away cheaply. That played right into their favour because they played with a low block and they wanted to come out on the counter. We knew what they wanted to do. On our side, we didn't implement our plan.
"We scored first. On so many occasions we have scored first. But we know what needs to be done. Unfortunately, we're in a period where we can't do much. We have to weather the storm. We have to plug the gaps. Vuyo now with the hamstring. At his age he has played 25 games this season. Defence is a bit fragile. We're leaking the odd goal and that's what is costly at the moment.
"We know where we're going. It's now 25 games where we've scored in each and every game. I know where you're pointing. It's something to work towards. We're coming to the end of the league. We have to make do with what we have. We have to rectify it in training. And then I'm positive that we'll get it right."
