The Birds are chasing league title honours, hoping to take three points off the Team of Choice and then see Orlando Pirates failing to beat Golden Arrows.
But Hendricks has warned Swallows that they are in for a real battle.
“The same thing happened last season where nobody gave us a chance against Ajax, playing away from home in Cape Town,” said Hendricks.
“In the end we almost won that game; we were leading 2-1 until they (Ajax) scored a late equalizer.
“This year everyone is talking about the game between Golden Arrows and Orlando Pirates as the decider,” he told Kickoff.com.
“It’s almost as if Swallows have already beaten us and Saturday is just a formality, which is not the case.
“We have 90 minutes of football ahead of us and we are also going out there with the intention of winning the game.
“We know they are a strong team and they have dangerous players like David Mathebula and Siyabonga Nomvethe, but we are not going to make things easy for them.”
