Stowman To Put Friendship Aside

UP-Tuks' Lindsay Stowman will come up against some old friends when his side host NMMU in a replay of last year's Varsity Football final on Monday.
 
Stowman played for the Madibaz side that ended as runners-up to UP-Tuks last year, and has since been recruited by the Pretoria outfit.
 
This means that he will line up against a few old teammates in the crucial showdown in the final round before the play-offs, but will not be very friendly before kick-off in this do-or-die match.
 
"I played for NMMU last year and actually went to school at Victoria Park with a few of their players like the captain Kurt Duff, Lundi Balfour and Lyndsay Jennings, but we are going to put friends aside on Monday, we can catch up after the game," he said.
 
The two sides are tied on log points, with NMMU ahead on goal difference, so the equation is simple for UP-Tuks - win at all costs.
 
"It is going to be a pre-final for us, both teams have been a bit inconsistent this season but we will just have to dig deep and work hard," said Stowman.
 
The UP-Tuks defender explained that his side will look to press hard and catch NMMU off-guard in their own half.
 
"We need to start chasing them high and stop them from playing, if we can win the ball in certain crucial areas of the field then we can hurt them," he said.
 
Stowman is looking forward to playing in front of his home crowd again after a tough outing in Bellville against UWC, but said that despite the high stakes there is not really any extra pressure.
 
"We are happy to be back home and we are hoping that a big crowd will turn out. There is pressure on us to perform in every game so we just need to stay calm and do the business," he said.
