With a third of the season already having been played, the Glamour Boys have been well worth their position at the summit, winning seven and drawing three of their opening 10 Premiership matches to maintain their billing as the only undefeated team in the league.

Stuart Baxter's men now face a tough test in the shape of the Dube Birds, although last term's runners-up currently find themselves seventh in the standings, 10 points behind the leaders.

Zeca Marques' side are also without a win in their last three matches, drawing two and losing one, while they most recently conceded late on as strugglers Chippa United rescued a point last weekend.

Amakhosi goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, though, is still expecting a tough clash against their Soweto rivals.

"I am focusing on the next game against Swallows. This is the biggest game for me because it is the next game," Khune told his club's official website.

"Swallows have done well recently and they cannot be underestimated. They have assembled a good team and one has to look at what they have achieved in the past two seasons. We need to be at our best to beat them.

"We are happy that we have gone so many games unbeaten and we are determined to continue with the good run we have enjoyed this season."

Chiefs are sweating on the fitness of Siphiwe Tshabalala and Bernard Parker, who both picked up knocks in South Africa's 1-0 defeat to Zambia last week.
