The 3-1 loss, which was the sixth defeat of the season, left Swallows bottom of the DStv Premiership standings.

In a statement issued by the club late on Sunday evening, Swallows said the Chiefs loss convinced the management that they need to take drastic steps in order to rescue the situation hence they decided to part ways with Truter.

The Swallows statement:

The Management of Swallows FC held an emergency meeting with the Coaching staff this evening.

After receiving a report from the Coaching staff, management was further convinced that something drastically need to happen.

With the team at the rock bottom of the DSTV Premiership, management has resolved that the entire Coaching Staff should not report for duty with immediate effect.

An interim arrangement will be announced soon.
