Udubs High On Confidence

UWC head into their match with the University of Limpopo full of confidence after the Cape side picked up their first victory of the Varsity Football campaign against last year's finalists, NMMU.
 
The win resurrected UWC's hopes of claiming a semi-final spot as it saw them climb into fifth position on the log and just three points off Kovsies, who currently occupy fourth place.
 
The Cape side host UL after picking up three consecutive victories, two in the USSA competition and one in Varsity Football, and will be hoping to keep the winning momentum going against a side who have only managed one point from their four matches.
 
UWC coach Boebie Williams is impressed with the progression his side has made but have a few injury concerns heading into Round Five of the tournament.
 
"Some players have picked up little niggles in the USSA match, so we will be assessing them at practice. They should recover in time to play against UL," he said.
 
Williams has been tweaking his squad since the start of the competition and is confident he has finally found a combination which suits their style of play.
 
"It's been tough and we've tried out a few different combinations. I think we are on the right track now as the combinations have worked well together in our previous three matches," he stated.
 
There has been plenty of talk around the condition of the field at the UWC Stadium but Williams says it's no longer a concern to his team as they have now become accustomed to the patchiness.
 
"We have played a few matches at home now and the players have adjusted to the surface. It's not going to be for UL to play here and we will make sure that we make the most of our home ground advantage," he added. 
 
UWC will not be taking their opponents lightly as they know the importance of picking up maximum points which will set them up nicely to sneak into fourth place ahead of the final two matches of the competition.
