Kovsies Stay Mum On Tactics
UFS-Kovsies coach Godfrey Tenoff wants to surprise unbeaten opponents NWU in a crunch game on Monday, when his side will be hunting a place in the Varsity Football semi-finals.
Tenoff’s team must win to qualify for the knock-out stage of the tournament and the coach believes playing at home could prove pivotal to their chances.
“We’re always happy to be playing at home. It gives us an advantage because our fans are always there in numbers.
“To be honest the greatest result for us will be a win, we’re not looking to score lots of goals or play fancy football. A win will be good enough and we’ll take it any way we can,” he said.
Kovsies have been in good form this season, but slumped a bit recently when they had to play two matches without Tenoff, who had coaching commitments with the SA intellectually impaired team for the World Cup in Brazil.\
The inspirational coach has remained mum about what his tactics will be against NWU.
“Jared Meyer is out suspended and we’ll miss him in defence, but his replacement is more than capable.
“The team will be more or less the same but I don’t want to give anything away about tactics or who is playing because I want to shock NWU on Monday,” he added.
