Rookie team Wal­ter Sisulu Univer­sity (WSU) landed a ma­jor blow in the Var­sity Football Cup when they whipped North West Univer­sity (NMU-Pukke) 3-2 in the open­ing round.

Most of the first-round bat­tles ended in goal­less draws leav­ing six teams on an equal num­ber of points.

The Tsh­wane derby – be­tween Univer­sity of Pre­to­ria (Tuks) and Tsh­wane Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy (TUT) – got un­der way on Thurs­day.

Wits Univer­sity fi­nally got their re­venge and made up for their em­bar­rass­ing 3-0 loss to the Univer­sity of Western Cape (UWC) in 2013 by beat­ing them this time.

They host Nel­son Man­dela Metropoli­tan Univer­sity (NMMUMadibas) in a 6pm kick­off to­mor­row.

UWC who are known to be un­touch­able at home, have an ad­van­tage against Tuks.

But Tuks are likely to up their game to show they are not the reign­ing cham­pi­ons by de­fault.

TUT will host WSU. Af­ter a strong start in the tour­na­ment, they will be look­ing at build­ing up on their suc­cess to stay on top of the log.

NWU-Pukke need to work hard on their de­fence be­fore their clash with Vaal Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy if their last game is any­thing to go by .

Vaal Univer­sity will be gun­ning to strengthen their lead over Pukke on the log.
