TUT Embrace Life On The Road

Last year’s finalists have been forced to take to the road in this season’s Varsity Football campaign due to the riots during the match against UP-Tuks at the TUT campus last season.

“When I am walking here on the beach in Durban, then maybe travelling for every game is not so bad,” says Tshwane University of Technology coach, Bushy Moloi.

Moloi says it has been tough, but there are two ways that it can be approached.

“There is a different atmosphere when you’re travelling [for] every game. It can either make or break a squad. For instance, it’s been good for the seniors as they have opportunity in their last year still to travel, but for the juniors – in their first year of university life – it is an adaption because you are away from campus three days a week, every week and that affects the semester,” Maloi said.

“I was hoping maybe we could get the Limpopo game, or the UKZN matches at home, but we are learning all the time, and taking in lessons from other campuses how they go about their business while we beef up our security at home.”

Considering all of this, it is an amazing achievement that TUT is currently on 10 points and just three behind the log-leaders University of Johannesburg. This is only due to last week’s 1-0 defeat to UJ, which Moloi believes is a blessing in disguise.

“UJ are a strong opposition, they have a good team and are well supported by their technical team. But we needed to lose at some point, it is good for our preparation. Some teams want to play smart, pretty football. We want to play nine games in the competition. That should tell you something, so we are ready for tonight against UKZN and we will take it from there,” Moloi said.
