UWC Keen To Cull UL
A confident UWC side are hoping to gain some momentum by taking advantage of Varsity Football strugglers UL in Cape Town on Monday night.
The Cape students will look to stick to winning ways after bagging their first victory of the tournament against last year's finalists NMMU earlier this week.
Another win against Northlink College in a mid-week USSA clash has given the players an extra boost ahead of the clash against Limpopo.
The win against Madibaz has seen UWC climb the standings to fifth place and coach Boebie Williams now has his eye on the top four as they find themselves just three point adrift of fourth-placed UFS-Kovsies.
Williams does have some injury concerns in attack with Thulani Mkosi, Curtley Beukes and Akhona Bonga all picking up knocks in mid-week.
Versatile midfielder Keanan Davids makes a welcome return from injury. Davids’ availability will give Williams more options and the player’s experience could prove telling against a UL side not be taken lightly.
The coach also hopes the bumpy pitch at UWC Stadium will be to the home side’s advantage on Monday night.
