Adams Calls For Mental Toughness

UWC's assistant coach Salie Adams has called on his players to emulate their previous performance and keep improving their mental aspect of the game.
 
The Cape side scored in the 90th minute against defending champions UP-Tuks to secure a shock 2-1 win which has given them an outside chance of making the next phase of the competition.
 
This wasn't the first time they managed to pull the proverbial rabbit out of the hat as they also scored late in a 2-1 away win over NMMU as well as in a 2-2 home draw with current log leaders UJ.
 
Adams had much praise towards all the players in those matches as it proved they have the hunger, passion and drive to fight until the final whistle.
 
"It was a good result (against Tuks) because now we have a chance of sneaking into the next phase. The late goals we have been scoring shows the hunger this team has to fight to the bitter end," he said.
 
UWC have placed much emphasis on their fitness levels and mental approach to games throughout the campaign and despite blowing hot and cold thus far, Adams believes his team will definitely be up for the fight in the Cape derby as they know the permutations.
 
"We have been placing emphasis on getting the players to concentrate for the entire 90 minutes. When they remain focused, they get the desired result. The only reason we have lost and drawn games is because they switched off at crucial moments," he added.
 
The Bellville students will make the trip down the N2 to face fellow Cape side UCT in a derby that has more than just bragging rights at stake.
 
UWC have an outside chance of making the next phase of the competition if they managed to score plenty of goals en route to claiming maximum points. They will also need to rely on other results going their way.
