Dynamic duo to boost Madibaz
NMMU-Madibaz coach, Graeme Harrison, is sticking to a winning formula for their clash against UL in Port Elizabeth on Monday.
Harrison is delighted none of his players succumbed to injury and will keep faith in the same squad which produced a 4-0 win over UFS-Kovsies in Bloemfontein earlier this week.
The coach says he is happy with his team’s performance even though the big victory came as a bit of a surprise, saying he did not expect his side to score so many goals and Kovsies not to score any.
The battle between NMMU and UFS to make the semi-finals will prove to be quite interesting and could present supporters with a nail-biting finish to the final round of fixtures.
Both teams have relatively easy matches and are fourth and fifth respectively with seven points from five matches. Madibaz are slightly ahead on goal difference.
This statistic could see Harrison rely heavily on his attacking players to bag some more goals next week, while also hoping his defence holds firm.
Strikers, Lukhanyo Rasmeni and Simamkele Thobi, have been linking up well for Madibaz and both forwards got their names on the score-sheet against Kovsies this week.
Harrison has included the dynamic duo in his starting line-up for the clash against UL and will be hoping for more of the same from the talented pair on Monday.
