Divine Intervention For TUT
TUT head coach Bushy Moloi says they will be banking on some divine intervention to help them with their preparations ahead of their semifinal against defending champions UP-Tuks.
The Pretoria side beat NWU-Pukke 2-0 in Potchefstroom to advance to the semis and Moloi was still not happy with his team's overall performance.
"We planned well and I think we played our best in the second half," said Moloi. "I was not happy with our first-half performance and we made the small errors like we did against UWC a few weeks ago.
"In preparation for the semi we must go to church and pray to the Almighty to give us some direction."
With Pukke needing a win to make the semis themselves, Moloi said he was surprised with some of Michael Seleka's selections for such a big game.
"We knew what they wanted to do and we stuck to our principles. I was not worried at all.
"I was surprised that the Pitso brothers (Kagiso and Gontse) were not on the field together. They have been fantastic together, but surprisingly one was left on the bench," he added.
Moloi also sent out a stern warning to their semifinal opponents.
"They (UP-Tuks) should be scared. They are the defending champions and they will have all the pressure on them.
"I wanted to go to Cape Town to play UWC in the semifinals, but we are confident we can go there and beat them in the final. If Wits win their semi then we know we are going to win this tournament," Moloi added.
TUT will play Tuks in the first semifinal at the Tuks Sport Stadium and UWC will welcome Wits in the second semifinal in Bellville, Cape Town.
