Adams Brushes Off "Bad Travellers" Tag

UWC coach Salie Adams believes his team’s “bad travellers” tag is underserved, although he knows it will only go away once they achieve that much-needed victory on the road.
 
UWC’s away record leaves much to be desired, which was only emphasised after “The Bushies” lost their opening 2018 Varsity Football encounter 2-1 at North-West University last week. However, Adams believes his team can get that win away from their Bellville “Operation Room” when they face an in-form Wits side this week.
 
“These things do stick in people’s minds, but people are quick to forget that we beat UJ 5-1 last year at UJ! But we know we need to improve away from home and last week’s result did not help,” Adams said.
 
“Every season I need to get the same message across because the group changes so drastically. I have to convince these guys it’s not a holiday.”
 
The only team to break the Tshwane stranglehold on the Varsity Football competition – UWC are the only team from outside of UP-Tuks or TUT to hold aloft the Varsity Football trophy in 2015 – there is certainly enough quality in the UWC line-up to put together another strong challenge in this year’s championship.
 
Last year’s semi-finalists have a host of Ajax CT youth players on its books and Adams believes his team just needs time to find its feet.
 
“We are hopeful that we will get a result this week at Wits. It is just that they need to make the switch from local and get their minds right about now playing at a higher level. The individual talent is all there, it is just about getting together and playing as a team going forward,” he explained.
