TUT Sweating Over Star Player

TUT head coach Bushy Moloi is sweating over fitness of star player Itumeleng Mogotsi ahead of Thursday's semifinal against UP-Tuks.
 
Mogotsi is struggling with a nagging groin injury and Moloi says it will be a big loss if he cannot take to the field in such a big match.
 
"We are battling with injuries at the moment," said Moloi.
 
"Mogotsi is not fine and he might be out of the game. Our keeper is also not a 100 percent as well and Sydney Seromo is also still struggling at the moment."
 
TUT will still have more than enough talent to cover for Mogotsi should he not be able to take the field, however, Moloi knows that the midfielder can be a match winner on the day,
 
"We saw on Sunday when he played for the Ke Yona side against Sundowns what he is capable of.
 
"He did extremely well when he came onto the field in the second half and he changed the game. If he is unable to play on Thursday, we still have Thabang Motau who can fill that attacking role," he added.
 
Moloi said he was happy that Mogotsi will also have an opportunity to showcase his talents on trial at Sundowns next month.
 
"That is what Varsity Football is all about. We are promoting the young talents of the tournament and this is where they get recognised," he said.
 
Although he did not want to say it directly, Moloi is confident that his team will be lifting the Varsity Football trophy in two weeks’ time. He also pointed out that this year's log leaders UWC, a team Moloi would like to face in the final, did not break their record points tally of 17 that they set in 2013.
 
"We still have that record, they could not break it after losing in the last round. We might not even face them in the final if we win because Wits have finished the league phase strongly.
 
"For our semfinal against Tuks nothing changes. They are two-time champions and we are going to give them the respect they deserve, but we are going to punish them on Thursday.
 
"We want all the people of Tshwane to come and watch and we even want the mayor of Tshwane to come as well," said Moloi.
