TUT Winning The Hard Way, On The Road
TUT coach Bushy Moloi is never shy of a one-liner, and he was at his best again after his team defeated UWC 1-0 in Cape Town.
“When we went to Limpopo last week, we were in Africa, this week we came back to South Africa when we went to Cape Town, and now we’re off to Angola again next week in North West,” Moloi said.
TUT are certainly becoming better travellers after they were held to a draw by UL in Limpopo last week. Many were surprised considering UL lost their opening match 7-1, but Moloi worked hard with his players and motivated them to pull off a massive win in the Mother City on Thursday.
“It was not an easy game, especially when you play against a strong team like UWC on home turf. But we’re getting used to the travel and managing the academics and football because my players have now missed three academic days for three weeks in a row. We can also now see Limpopo are no pushovers,” Moloi said.
Last year’s losing finalists did not want to write off UWC, even though the Bellville side are without a point after three matches.
“They need to win all their remaining games, but they can do it. They showed at USSA and they snuck in at the death because they are a quality team, with quality players and a quality coach. They will still cause many upsets.
“My team… we just need to remain level-headed. Take one game at a time and not look too far ahead,” Moloi explained.
