Harrison: Permutations Are Dangerous

NMMU Madibaz coach Graeme Harrison is well aware of what his team needs to do to get into the next phase of the tournament and is staying clear of worrying with other permutations which could negatively affect his team.
 
The Madibaz are currently in third place on the log, tied on points with Kovsies and their upcoming opponents UP-Tuks.
 
"We would make a mistake to think about the permutations. We can control our own destiny if we go there (to Pretoria) and win. Playing around with the different variations of what could happen is a dangerous game to play," he said.
 
Harrison did, however, admit that playing the late game (19.00) allows them to know what is happening and what happened in the other games and although it would be at the back of their minds, they are fully focused on creating their own path into the semifinals.
 
"Our main focus is the win. We not going to settle for anything less and then have to hope other teams do us a favour. We want to first secure the win and if a home semifinal is an option, we will try to achieve that," he added.
 
The Madibaz have made a solitary change to their squad with Cloudius Sangandira returning to the squad after missing out on two consecutive games due to suspension and academic commitments.
 
The PE students will make the trip to the nation's capital to take on defending champions UP-Tuks in a match that can only be described as a quarterfinal.
 
The match is a replay of last year's final which the Pretoria students won 4-1. One thing is for sure though, a giant will fall.
 
NMMU Squad: 24 Lyndsay Jennings, 12 Onela Beqezi, 5 Athini Bisha, 16 Lundi Balfour, 13 Vuyolwethu Marele, 19 Karabo Motlhabi, 6 Kurt Duff (captain), 10 Cloudius Sangandira, 18 Olwethu Ngako, 14 Simamkele Thobi, 8 Lukhanyo Rasmeni, 1 Matthew Booysen, 21 Kevin Kevido, 4 Zukisani Mtendeni, 20 Litha Fingo, 17 Sacin Jackson, 11 Kieran Koert, 9 Lukhanyo Ndabeta.
