Madibaz' Mission

NMMU Madibaz are on a mission to secure a semi-final spot in this year's Varsity Football tournament but will need to overcome a University of Limpopo side who will be playing for pride.
 
The PE students currently occupy fourth position on the log, tied on points with Kovsies and will be going all out to secure their third win of the competition when they host second from bottom UL.
 
Coach Graeme Harrison will be showing faith in the same players who thumped Kovsies 4-0 in Bloemfontein. This means that talisman striker Cloudius Sangandira will not be involved in the match despite returning from a one match suspension.
 
"We won't be making any changes to the squad. The squad impressed me in Bloemfontein and they have deserved to retain their spots. It's reward for their hard," he said.
 
The Madibaz are well aware of the threat UL possess after picking up an impressive draw against the more fancied UWC outfit. The Limpopo students are in their own mini battle to avoid the wooden spoon and have pride on the line.
 
NMMU have found a winning combination and game plan but Harrison will be approaching the match against UL with caution as he knows the dangers of playing against a team who are close to rock bottom on the log.
 
"They (UL) will throw everything they have at us because they will be playing for pride. We found a game plan that worked for us but we have to be cautious going into the next game," he added.
 
Harrison has handed some players their debuts in the competition and they have taken the chance given to them but will want to maintain that form in the next match.
 
"The younger players (who were given debuts) have really impressed me. So I have to reward them. They have brought a new dynamic to the squad and it's impressive to see how their hunger has rubbed off on the rest of the squad," he stated.
 
The Madibaz won't be taking the Limpopo students lightly and will be going all out to impress their home fans by not only picking up maximum points but also improving their goal difference.
 
Harrison urged all Windy City residents to flock to the NMMU Stadium to witness a great game of football and to also support the varsity side.
