Phophi: 12th Man Would Have Helped

There has been much talk about the impact a crowd has on a home team's performance with NWU-Mafikeng attracting, on average, 7000 supporters at their home games.
 
However, the University of Limpopo haven't had the chance to draw inspiration from their home support as the team have had to travel across the country each week to fulfill their Varsity Football commitments.
 
UL's Theo Phophi believes his side could have made a bigger impact in the competition had they been able to play some of their games at home.
 
"Not having home games has made it tougher for us than it already is. The role of the supporters is to lift the team when they are down and we haven't had that in this tournament," he said.
 
The infamous 12th man has played a crucial role in turning games around for teams, none more so than the loyal football crazy fans of the North West students.
 
The right winger said despite the challenges his team has faced, their spirits are still high and they are as determined as ever to finish their Varsity Football on a winning note.
 
"We are going to Joburg to play for pride. UJ shouldn't undermine us because, if they do, we will pull off an upset," he added.
 
The Accounting student is grateful for the opportunity this tournament has brought to the Limpopo side as he feels there hasn't been many chances for them to display their talents.
 
"Varsity Football is a great platform for students like us (in Limpopo) to be seen around the country and have a chance to display our talents. It would have been difficult for us to be seen if we weren't involved in this competition," he stated.
