Madibaz Have Eyes On The Prize

NMMU Madibaz will make the trip to Pretoria to take on defending champions UP-Tuks in a must win battle and the PE students have their eyes firmly on maximum points.
 
Preparation has been going well with everyone in the camp being hungry, focused and fully on board with the plans and processes the coach Graeme Harrison has set for them.
 
The previous encounter between the sides was in last year's final where Tuks defeated the Madibaz 4-1 to claim the inaugural title but Harrison said that result is no concern to him or his team.
 
"There's no such thing as revenge to us. Last year's result is in the past and means nothing. We are fully focused for the upcoming game," he said.
 
The Madibaz occupy third spot on the log while Tuks are in fourth but both teams have 10 points with the former having a superior goal difference.
 
The PE students will have more confidence and momentum than their opponents as they have scores seven goals in their previous two games and will be looking to pick up where they left off.
 
"We know it's a must win. We have showed that we can score goals and also keep cleansheets. So we are going to take the game to them," he added.
 
Harrison said he is well aware of Tuks' direct playing style and are fully prepared to compete and dominate the aerial battle as well.
 
It will be a tight game with many permutations, however, Harrison feels that keeping an eye on the other games will only be to the detriment of the team's focus.
 
"The other results will be at the back of our minds seeing that we playing the late game but if we worry too much on that then we will lose focus on the job we need to do. It's a very dangerous thing to do," he said.
