NWU Greedy For Goals
NWU will be fired-up to score goals galore as they aim to secure a big win against UFS-Kovsies in a crunch game next week.
Both teams are eyeing a place in the semi-final stage of the Varsity Football tournament. NWU are second in the standings on 12 points and Kovsies are one of three teams on 10 points in the top five.
NWU remain unbeaten after a tough 1-1 draw to top team UJ earlier this week and coach, Amos Xabanisa, has made it clear he wants goals a win and a home semi-final.
“The aim is to score as many goals as possible while also bagging three points. We want the home semi-final and the players are hungry,” he said.
The coach says the NWU players have been looking at some of the mistakes they have been making defensively, while also working at improving their finishing.
“We have been creating lots of chances but our finishing has been poor. Scoring will be the key to our success against Kovsies.
“The players were not as sharp as they should have been in front of goal against UJ, so we’ve been working at getting everyone clinical,” Xabanisa said.
The NWU coach says he has faith in his players and they are feeling positive they will progress after their clash in Free State next week.
