Tuks Employ Aerial Assault

Defending champions UP-Tuks will be heading to Cape Town to face UWC on a field which could be tougher to deal with than their opponents.
 
The Bellville Stadium's pitch has not been in the best shape and is in stark contrast to the lush facilities the Pretoria students are accustomed to.
 
Tuks will, in all probability, have to adapt their style of play from a passing game to a long ball game which they feel comfortable with considering the stature of key strikers Lucky Mathosi and Motshelo Mfulwane.
 
Mathosi and Mfulwane are big, tall strikers who will have a major impact on the game, regardless of the style of play Tuks chooses to use. They are well adept to playing the passing game but their height also allows them to dominate the aerial challenge.
 
The only change sees Robin Swartz being replaced by Dylan Paterson as the influencial captain hasn't recovered in time to make the trip to the Cape.
 
Tuks have struggled defensively this season and have already conceded more goals this year than they did during last year's successful campaign.
 
UP-Tuks Starting XI: 32 Lebo Ngubeni, 4 Lawrence Ntswane, 8 Nicholas Killas, 13 Lindsay Stowman, 20 Thabo Ndlovu, 10 Jeremiah Nkwana, 11 Richard Moremi, 5 Simbongile Njokwe, 15 Jarryd Van Den Berg, 9 Mbongeni Masilela, 2 Botshelo Mfulwane, 
 
Substitutes: 1 Nicholas Stothard, 21 Khumbulani Siluma, 16 Dylan Paterson, 22 Dean Wilkinson, 18 Lucky Mathosi, 23 Vuze-Umuze Khoza.
