NWU To Break Curse

NWU-Mafikeng coach Amos Xabanisa is adamant his side will overcome UP-Tuks and progress to the final when the two powerhouses clash in Mafikeng.
 
He has been hard at work to improve their attacking prowess after they had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Kovsies in a match which saw them missing numerous chances.
 
Xabanisa knows the way his team starts the game is key to their success as he expects his charges to settle early in the game and get the thousands Mafikeng faithful to raise their voices and get behind the team.
 
"We must settle early and play our game. Doing that will get the crowd going and that will raise our game even more. The players feed off the energy of the fans," he said.
 
Following the Kovsies match, there was concern surrounding the fitness of influential player, Orebotse Mongae but Xabanisa is certain it's nothing to be concerned about and that the striker will be fully fit and ready for the semifinal clash.
 
Another concern for the coach was the sudden case of influenza which struck some players before their previous match but all the players have recovered and were back at training.
 
This will be the fourth time the sides will clash in Varsity Football with Tuks having the edge over the North West students having beaten them twice last year and playing to a 2-2 draw in this year's competition.
 
Plans were set in motion, following the Kovsies match, to increase the number of stands in Mafikeng in an effort to accommodate an expected increase in the number of spectators, which could reach in excess of 8000 fans.
