TUT Coach Bushy Moloi: Competition Heating Up
It’s only going to get hotter and hotter now, says Tshwane University of Technology coach Bushy Moloi.
TUT are currently top of the Varsity Football log with 16 points heading into the final round of league fixtures after a hard-fought 1-0 victory over the Wits on Monday evening.
The three points also earned TUT a home semi-final and the Tshwane side are looking to be the bookies’ runaway favourites to defend their Varsity Football title.
Moloi, though, is taking nothing for granted and believes his team has achieved nothing as yet.
“At the start of the competition we wanted to play nine games, we have only played six. There is still one league game left, the semi-final and hopefully the final. Only after winning those games can we say we have achieved something. It is only going to get hotter and hotter now,” said Moloi.
TUT’s form has certainly been sparkling thus far in the campaign, with the tournament’s leading player Temba Ndlovu excelling for the Tshwane side.
But such has been Moloi’s vision throughout the season that he does not want his team to be dependent on the likes of Ndlovu and fellow goalscorer Keabetswe Mokwena.
He has constantly rung the changes – three against University of Western Cape and two against Wits – in a bid to keep his players hungry for success.
“We will make a few more changes for the game against NWU. We’ll bring in a few more youngsters. If the Ndlovu's are not hungry, there are plenty to take their place. You will see against NWU how these youngsters run them off the park because they want to be involved come semi-final time.”
Moloi also praised his technical team for providing the side with “good advice” from the sidelines, which allowed the players to play the enterprising football they have been playing.
