NWU Trust Trio To Upset UJ
NWU hope their fearsome threesome will be in top form for their top-of-the-table clash against UJ on Monday night.
Playmakers Orebotse Mongae, Sandile Mbatha and striker Tshenolo Machwisa have been turning heads with some sparkling displays in the tournament this season.
Coach, Amos Xabanisa, will be hoping the trio of maestros produce match-winning performances to spur his team to victory as they look to end the round robin phase of the competition on top of the standings.
Kyle Amon and Xolani Mtshali come back into the squad for Monday’s clash with Joshua Maduna and Letlhogonolo Mirwa out injured. Aobakwe Mopelwa and Madie Makwela also failed to make the squad.
UJ are currently on top, but only by goal difference with NWU breathing down their necks in second.
The match on Monday should prove to be a mouth-watering affair as both teams play a passing game and focus on dominating possession as they attack.
NWU have been working hard on improving their defence this week after being exposed in that area during their 2-2 draw with defending champions UP-Tuks in Pretoria.
