Varsity Football

UWC Are No Flash In The Pan

UWC captain Reon October has his heart set on proving their phenomenal run in the round-robin phase of the Varsity Football competition was no fluke.
The shot stopper believes the only pressure they will feel will come from the fans and the expectations they have but there will certainly not be any pressure from the match itself.
"There will definitely be pressure as the game gets closer but it will only come from the expectations of the fans. Coach Salie Adams has already told us that there is no pressure from his side and that we just need to continue doing the things that got us to this point.
"We certainly want to go out there in the semifinal and put in a performance that will prove to everyone that our league form was not a fluke. We are all excited and keen for the match," October said.
UWC will welcome Wits to the "Operation Theatre" and are keen on maintaining their unbeaten home record, which will also them host the final.
"The match we had against them in the opening round was a tough challenge for us because we were struggling to adjust to the altitude, so it is definitely good that they are coming to us this time. They are accustomed to playing on a flat surface, whereas we have to play on our cabbage patch.
"Our pitch certainly takes home ground advantage to a new level and then you have the crowd who really gets behind us, so it is definitely not going to be easy for Wits. We don't plan on making it any easier on the field as well because we refuse to allow our visitors to dictate things to us in our backyard," he added.
October remained coy on who he would like their opponents to be, should they advance to the final, as there are equal reasons for wanting to host either of the Pretoria sides.
"Should we make the final, our opponents can be either of the Pretoria sides. Playing Tuks in the final would be great because then we could get the chance to beat the defending champions and take the title away from them to end their dominance.
"Then there is TUT, whose coach was very arrogant when we beat them in Cape Town. I remember him saying that we are not a good side and they are better than us but they could not beat us. So it would also be nice to play against them, so that we can silence him," he stated.
