TUT Eye First Final

TUT will have their eyes on progressing to their first ever Varsity Football final after being knocked out at the semifinal stage of the 2013 tournament.
 
The Pretoria outfit came up against a determined NMMU side and fell short of reaching the final by a solitary goal and will be using that defeat as the inspiration they need to overcome defending champions UP-Tuks on Thursday.
 
"We were disappointed to lose out on making the final in 2013 and will be looking at that result to inspire us to achieve more this time around. We know we are capable of going all the way and are certainly determined to achieve that goal. We just need to ensure that we put in the hard work on the field and are willing to give it everything we have," TUT midfielder Thabang Motau said.
 
TUT will have their work cut out for them though as they make the short trip across Tshwane to neighbours Tuks for a knockout encounter that will have more than just a spot in the final up for grabs.
 
The teams have met in the opening round of the competition at the TUT Stadium where they played out to an exciting goalless draw. Both sides have gone through ups and downs since that result and Motau believes they will be successful if they execute their plan properly.
 
"We need to ensure we implement the coach's plan and strategy perfectly and if we can do that, we will definitely be in the final. We have never been there before, so it is definitely something we using as a motivating factor.
 
"We know that we need to not concede any goals if we want to win. Tuks are a dangerous side and we know they will come at us with everything they have and they will have the majority of the crowd behind them. 
 
"We have the ability and the discipline to keep a clean sheet but that will mean nothing if we are unable to convert the chances we create. So we need to find that balance and ensure we make the most of the chances we create," he added.
