13 February 2020 – TS Galaxy FC defender Austin Dube is confident that the club will turn things around when they meet University of Pretoria on Sunday in an away clash at the TUKS Stadium in Pretoria.
The last time the two sides met was in November when Tuks came back from behind to steal a 2-1 victory following Bathusi Aubaas’ penalty.
The hard-tackling defender said the extra days the club has had to prepare for this important clash would assist them in turning the corner following a string of poor results that saw them exiting the Nedbank Cup.
“Look, we always prepared but luck was just not on our side. We had seven days to prepare for this Tuks game, which is something we never had in other games previously, I can say we are ready’’ Dube said.
Following their disappointing first round exit of the Nedbank Cup, The Rockets will for the first be without head coach Dan Malesela who stepped down his position as head coach following the defeat to Chippa United.
The defender says he learnt a lot from the tactician, saying that he moulded him into becoming the footballer he is today.
“I’ve learnt a lot from coach Dan. I’m the player that I am today because of him. He contributed a lot in me as an individual as well as the person that I am today. He also contributed a lot in the team’s success.” the defender said.
A win against Tuks will assist in boosting the club’s morale and move away from the dreaded danger of a relegation battle.
Galaxy are currently sitting on 12th position with 22 points while AmaTuks lie on sixth position with 30 points from 20 games.
