Zwane Wary Of Complacency As UJ Face Bogey Side UKZN

University of Johannesburg coach Mandla Zwane has warned his team not to be complacent when they face Varsity Football strugglers’ University of KwaZulu-Natal on Thursday.
 
UKZN have faced an uphill battle since joining the elite ranks of Varsity Football this season for the first time, with the east coast side yet to register a point after three rounds.
 
However, the UJ have reason to be wary of their opponents due to having been beaten by UKZN for the last three times in the USSA Week, including this year when UKZN went on to claim the title in Port Elizabeth.
 
Zwane, though, doesn’t want his team to think about revenge, but instead focus on claiming the points to maintain their momentum. UJ were victorious in the Highveld derby last week when they downed Wits.
 
“UKZN are struggling, but we can’t take them for granted. The might put out a different team, different players who will be hungry to perform,” Zwane said.
 
“It is not going to be an easy game. It is also not about revenge. It is a game of football, with both teams having an equal chance of victory. It is about who wants it more on the day.”
 
Zwane also said his team would take plenty of confidence from wining the derby last week for the remainder of the competition.
 
“It is crucial for us to continue on this path. Every game is important and it is up to the players to perform. No game is a walkover and we are preparing accordingly,” he said.
 
UJ will have to do it the hard way, though, as they will travel to the Howard College Rugby Stadium in Durban to face-off against UKZN
