Can UCT Break Their Duck?
UCT goalkeeper, Bevan Adonis, is hungry to taste his first-ever Varsity Football victory in the Cape derby with UWC next week.
The clash on the Green Mile between the local rivals will be the Ikeys' last chance to notch their first win in the competition and move off the bottom of the standings.
Adonis played last year and he believes the standard of football has taken a big step up this season.
"It has been much tougher this season, the level has been much higher and there is a bigger gulf in class between the top and bottom sides," he said.
UCT have conceded 19 goals this season, with two 6-0 defeats to UJ and NWU, and have scored just three which Adonis believes has been their biggest problem.
"Our inability to score has cost us, we had chances in many of our games but did not take them," he said.
Adonis has never lost to UWC, and he knows the visitors will come out all guns blazing as they look to secure a semifinal spot.
"It is a big game, they are going to come at us hard and they should have some supporters from UWC.
"We are looking for our first win in Varsity Football and this is our last chance to move off the bottom of the log," he said.
The UCT goalkeeper has been under fire for most of the season, and he has tried to learn as much as he can.
"I have been put under pressure but I try to take the positives out of that and learn as much as I can," he said.
