UJ Conduct Key To Slay Kovsies

UJ captain, Grant Bruchhausen, will do his best not to get sent off again when his team take on UFS-Kovsies in the Varsity Football semi-finals next week.

The defender was controversially given his marching orders for allegedly showing dissent when the two sides clashed earlier this season.

Bruchhausen is a key player in the UJ squad and he is keen to make amends after his one match suspension due to the red card.

“I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve learnt my lesson and even though the refereeing in the tournament hasn’t been that good, I know now that I must just keep quiet and stay out of trouble on the pitch.

“The players have been quite disciplined but the referees are very strict and they are just waiting for us to do something they can penalise,” he said.

The skipper says the UJ players have a break from academic activities this week and can turn their attention completely to their crucial match in Soweto on Monday night.

“We haven’t trained much this week, but we’ve been doing some team-building stuff and we know our coach is expecting us to be much more focused next week.

“The whole team is really amped for the semis and we know can beat Kovsies because we’ve played before and that was away. This time we’re playing in Soweto, the soccer capital of the country,” he said.   

Bruchhausen says the players have worked hard this season with coach, Bradley Carnell, to keep their shape at the back and he believes that aspect of their game will be key when they take on UFS next week.
