UNIVERSITY of Pretoria, who have been on and off in the National First Division (NFD), are hoping to build something positive from their past results.

AmaTuks started their NFD campaign with a fine performance, recording two victories in the opening two games. While fans were still enjoying that, the team started to drop points as they played a draw and lost two games.

The two-week Fifa break helped them right their wrongs.

 Coming from the break last weekend they collected maximum points away, defeating Black Leopards 2-0 at Thohoyandou Stadium, in conditions that were not that good according to their coach Shaun Bartlett.

Today the Pretoria-based outfit host Witbank Spurs who are not struggling at Tuks Stadium (3:30pm).

Coach Shaun Bartlett admits they are under pressure since they are at home.

He said: “We’ve not been doing well in our home games. We should step up and stamp the authority at home teams must not walkaway with the points. We’ve drawn positivity from our past game that we won against Leopards and we’ll build around that going forward.Keeping clean sheets is one of the things that we need to do, we must try by all means not to concede goals.”
) Meanwhile, Jomo Cosmos host Cape Town All Stars at Olen Park Stadium. All Stars have fired two coaches already and won one game this season.

The former Bafana Bafana Striker told SunSport that the games that they lost were eye openers for them and he can’t blame the players.

“It’s not easy for a new team to adapt to new circumstances in a short period of time but the boys had shown a fighting spirit. The two games that we failed to win shown us where we need to improve and we have been working on that to make sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes”.
