Monyai: It’s Pay Back Time

University of Pretoria will need to forget about their 2-1 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday, and switch focus to their next league encounter against Polokwane City tomorrow.

Tuks welcome the relegation-threatened side at Tuks Stadium after they were walloped 3-0 in the first round in Polokwane.

Captain, Tebogo Monyai, says they tried everything in their power to win the game against the Brazilians, but it was not to be.

He told the Siya crew that their neighbours parked the bus, and that made it impossible for them to break their wall in search of an equaliser.

“We tried so hard I think we were unlucky not to get a draw or a win. We wasted good clear cut chances there but it’s part of football you know. However, if you saw the game, Sundowns was on their back foot and we piled pressure on them until they parked the bus. However, our mission now is to shift our focus to our next game against City. They beat us in the first round and they owe us this time around.

“City are one of the teams that play good football at home, but we also play at home so this time around they must lose. We have collected 22 out of 28 points at home this season, and that tells you that we’re on fire at home.  We cannot afford to lose against City. A team like Tuks must beat teams around us in order to open the gap and move to a decent position. We must take it one game at a time and we’ll do that against City. We need to qualify for the top eight in the last six remaining games,” said the skipper.

The encounter is scheduled to start at 18:00
