THE Tshwane University of Technology Football fell from grace after having failed to secure victory in their last three Varsity Football games.
However, their coach Bushy Moloi believes they will pass their test with distinction on Wednesday when they face Wits Football in the university war.
The Red Army, as TUT are known, suffered a disappointing 2-0 loss to defending champions, North West University, at Tuks Stadium in Tshwane.
They failed to take advantage against the 10-man side from Bokone Bophirima who played with one man down, late in the second stanza.
Moloi’s strategy to turn their fortunes around is to avoid conceding early in the games.
“Dominating in games is a bonus for us, and that should be motivating for our players,” Moloi said.
“So, if we can convert and take chances, I think we will have better results.”He said the lack of experience in his squad is another reason why the Red Army are low in bullets.
“This is a learning curve for new players, our young team,” added Moloi.“We are the youngest team in the tournament and it was bound to happen.
“The maturity of our players is what is lacking. They are still young and trying to organise themselves.
“We only met in August and competition started now in September.”He added that it is unfortunate they find themselves in position seven after three games.
