Mark Haskins’ Wits Prepare For Battle

Wits coach Mark Haskins is preparing his team for a battle ahead of Thursday’s much-anticipated Varsity Football clash against UWC. 

Haskins is fully aware of the challenge the Bushies pose, especially after the Capetonians lost their opening round fixture last week to North-West University.

“There’s no doubt UWC are a tough side to face. We have seen over the years how formidable they have been in the competition; they won it in 2015 and again reached the semis last year. They are a tough outfit with loads of quality players and they will still be smarting from last week’s defeat. That’s not what they would have liked and will now be coming hard at us in search for their first win. It is going to be a battle,” Haskins said.

In contrast, Wits are full of confidence due to their 3-2 victory over tournament debutants University of KwaZulu-Natal last week. The Milpark-based team have brought in a group of new faces for this competition and Haskins believes the squad morale is on an all-time high.

“We did really well last week, but it’s going to be completely different this week. We’re really looking forward to testing ourselves against a quality team. We have a few newbies and they are gelling nicely with the older, more experienced players so the spirit in the camp is really good and we are hoping for a good run in the competition this year,” Haskins added.

Wits will also be hoping to extend UWC’s woeful record away from home with Salie Adams’ side being known for their 'bad travellers' tag.

The match will be televised live from the Wits Stadium on SuperSport at 4pm.
