The University of the Western Cape (UWC) women’s team assistant coach Simphiwe Clans is anticipating a very difficult road ahead in the Hollywoodbets Super League, but happy with the club’s decent start.
UWC kept their good run with a 3-0 win over Tsunami Queens in Harrismith this past weekend, thanks to goals by Sbulele Holweni and Abongile Dlani, who scored a brace on the day.
The victory sees the Western Cape-based outfit move up to second place in the national women’s league table with 17 points after eight games, just two points behind log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies.
“We are very happy with the win because we have not been good travellers lately. I think out of a possible nine points we had two points. It was very important for us to pick a win away,” said Clans.
“The good thing is that we took our chances. It was not like other couples of games we had played where we have not been creating chances.”
Clans admits his side need to pull up their socks as they try to salvage a top spot finish.
“If you want to put pressure on the title race, we must set ourselves goals to do well at home and in order to improve the record away,” he adds.
“It’s a tough road but at least for now we have got something to show off.”
UWC’s next assignment is against Richmond United on Saturday, 19 June at UWC Stadium with the kick-off scheduled for 15:00 in the afternoon.
