Harrison: TUT Will Take It

NMMU Madibaz head coach Graeme Harrison believes TUT will be crowned Varsity Football champions this year.
 
TUT will be travelling to Cape Town to take on UWC in this year's final and Harrison believes the pressure is getting to the Cape side who were lucky to escape with a win against Wits in the semifinals.
 
"I was backing UWC for the title, but I changed my mind and I think the underdogs TUT will take it," said Harrison.
 
"UWC were lucky against Wits and I think the nerves are getting to them. I think having home ground advantage is also adding to that pressure."
 
Having played against both teams this season, Harrison is well aware of each team's strengths and weaknesses.
 
"UWC's strength is that they can score goals, however if you are able to silence Thulani Mkosi and Josh Silent then they seem to shut down. If TUT can control the midfield then they will win. Wits had the better of UWC in the midfield in the semifinal and they almost won. 
 
"TUT's strength is in their midfield and strikers. They have strong runners there and they can cause damage. Their weakness is their defence. Their defenders are not as quick off the mark and their goalkeeper had to rescue them on a number of occasions.
 
"UWC are wise if they use pace in their attack," he added.
 
Harrison does not believes UWC's notorious poor pitch will give them an advantage next week.
 
"Going back to the semi-final Wits seemed more comfortable, while UWC seemed to be struggling as they gave a lot of possession away. So I don't think it will be a massive factor," said Harrison
