University Of Pretoria ready for upcoming National First Division matches

The University Of Pretoria have got their PSL Promotion Play-off hopes back into their own hands with just two games to go.
This is as a result of Jomo Cosmos' 1-0 victory over Black Leopards, who previously enjoyed a two point lead over Steve Barker's men. The University side did their part with a convincing 3-0 victory over United FC to regain second spot, a point ahead of Leopards. The result also keeps Barker's five-year plan to see the Tshwane Students in top flight football next season alive. It remains to be seen whether the two games remaining will put too much pressure on Tuks as they have been in this position before. Barker admits to KickOff.com that Cosmos has done them a huge favour. "It's back in our hands again. We just have to see it through now. No more slip ups; we can't tumble before the finishing line," says Barker. Barker is well aware that the tables can be turned against them but promises to do all he can to ensure that nothing ruins the last 180 minutes of their season. Tuks play Witbank Spurs away next, while Leopards will be involved in a Limpopo derby against Dynamos on the same day. Tuks final game is home to FC AK, while Lidoda Duvha are away to United FC.
