Kovsies not intending to change approach



Bloemfomtein – The University of the Free State football team had a sour start to their 2014 Varsity football competition, losing to University of Pretoria, but the Kovsies will be looking for more composure against University of Limpopo.

According to the midfielder and captain, Themba Zimo, the Bloemfontein-based side had numerous opportunities to win the match, but poor finishing let them down.

“We played well, but lost because we didn’t score. Overall, the score wasn’t a true reflection of the game,” he told Courant Sport.

“We created numerous scoring chances, but were unlucky and not as clinical in front of the posts as we should have. That cost us the game,” he added.

Zimo said there won’t be a lot of changes in the team as far as the approach is concerned; however, highlighted that concentration and composure will win them matches.

“We will approach the game against Limpopo the same way we approached Tuks. Just like Tuks, UL are not an easy side to play against, but we just need to make things easier for ourselves by doing the basics right.”

A second half goal from Lucky Mathosi was enough to hand Tuks a valuable home victory against Kovsies, to send the defending champions top of the standings after the first round.

Kovsies find themselves under pressure at the bottom of the standings. They will welcome UL on Monday at the Shimla Park at UFS. Kick-off is at 16:45
