UJ Plan UL Onslaught

UJ will run out with a strong squad against UL in Johannesburg next week, warning that they will not be giving the Varsity Football strugglers any mercy.
 
UJ coach, Bradley Carnell, will not be rotating his players and insists the main aim for his team is to win at all costs.
 
The Johannesburg students are unbeaten at the top of the standings in their first season of Varsity Football and Carnell says the belief is strong for UJ to keep winning.
 
UJ striker, Lumkile Davi, and defender, Tebogo Mandyu, picked up knocks in the team’s physical clash against NWU earlier this week, but Carnell says he has replacements if need be.
 
“We were fortunate we could rest a few players against NWU and the guys are always hungry and ready to play.
 
“Lumkile is recovering and we’re hoping Tebogo will be fit. We rotated our squad against NWU to field our best starting eleven, so we’ll stick to that team,” he added.
 
Carnell also gave his opposing coach Burney Mampshika credit for using good tactics, saying it’s the best he’s seen this season.
 
“We won’t underestimate UL, because even though they haven’t been winning, their tactics have been really good. Better than most of the teams we’ve played actually,” he said.
 
UJ go into this match knowing their opponents will want to finish their Varsity Football on a high as they have yet to produce a win this term.
 
UJ Squad: 1 Trent Harrison, 16 Mduduzi Khumalo, 22 Wisdom Mathibula, 3 Elroy Mothibe, 23 Tebogo Mandyu, 21 Steven Sibanyoni, 5 Lerato Tleane, 15 Ompjile Majwafi, 18 Pontsho Nyathi, 8 Brian Monyonya, 9 Lumkile Dava, 19 Ruwell Jagger, 11 Tshepo Tolo, 7 Ruben De Frietas, 13 Sandro Claro, 19 Karl Clements, 2 Matthew Edwards, 6 Lwazi Nogenga
