THE Madibaz football team are fighting to keep their Varsity Football campaign alive after going down 0-2 to the University of Pretoria at the Tuks Sport Stadium in Pretoria last week.

After three rounds, the team from Port Elizabeth are languishing at the bottom of the log and have everything to play for with four more fixtures remaining before the play-offs.

“We are down but not out of this competition,” said Madibaz head coach Graeme Harrison.

“Our log position is not favourable at the moment but we are not giving up hope. We are going to fight until the end.”

Harrison said the final score did not accurately reflect how evenly matched the two sides had been.

“I wouldn’t say that Tuks dominated us. We conceded a silly goal and they also got a penalty.

“So once again a lapse of concentration led to them taking one over on us,” he said.

He said his players had been working hard on their attacking strategy and ball possession and would continue to focus on these things ahead of tomorrow’s game.

“We’re not going to stop what we’re doing and we are just hoping that, once we get that first goal, things will start turning around for us. We just need that one breakthrough.”

Harrison said the team have made maximum use of their time to regroup before their first home game against log leaders North-West University tomorrow, August 13.

“Right now it seems as though all the odds are against us and everyone is writing us off. But we are going to come back from this; we are going to fight hard and we are not going to give up.”

The NWU game kicks off at 6.30pm at the Madibaz Stadium in Port Elizabeth
