Wits Mentally Ready

With their semifinal encounter in Cape Town around the corner, Wits are already mentally prepared and switched on for the tough task they will face against UWC.
 
Rain has caused they training venue to become waterlogged and has hindered their practice a little bit but coach Karabo Mogudi feels that has taken nothing away from them being switched on.
 
"It would have been nice to have trained on a wet field, seeing that heavy rain is expected in Cape Town on Thursday, but there just too much rain and the field became flooded. But we eventually managed to get in a few sessions and the guys are looking really sharp and mentally switched on.
 
"You always want to train like you want to play but I had to attempt to intervene and get the guys to calm down a little bit because we can't afford any major injuries before such a big match. The squad as a whole is looking good and everyone seems to have recovered from any little niggles they may have carrying and we now have the depth to cover certain key positions.
 
"We are all just hungry to get going. Hopefully, the guys can just forget about all the external factors and remained focus on the plan and execute it properly on the field," Mogudi said.
 
Wits met UWC in the opening round of the competition in Johannesburg where the sides played out to a goalless draw but Mogudi insists that match cannot be used as a yardstick because of what both teams have managed to achieve since then.
 
"There is no way that we can use the first match as a yardstick to measure what will happen this time around because they [UWC] have gone on to beat the big teams and secure top spot on the log with a game to spare. I believe the game will be a lot more intense and have plenty of action.
 
"We will certainly go out there and give it our all but we know it will definitely not be easy. They will have their fans behind them and they have a brilliant record at home," he added.
