This is the view of Mokete Mogaila, who has starred for the team this season, emphasising his skill by being awarded the Samsung moment of brilliance award for the second successive week on Thursday.
The 23-year-old was at the centre of UJ’s 1-1 draw with the University of Western Cape, keeping their unbeaten record intact.
They have secured a berth in the top four, but Mogaila said they wanted to finish the job by clinching a home semifinal.
They play their final league game against North-West University in Mafikeng on Thursday and a win or a draw will ensure they end in the top two.
“Securing a home semifinal will be a massive for us,” said Mogaila.
“We understand that there is a bit of pressure due to the expectations of the home fans, but the advantages of playing on familiar turf outweigh this.
“At home you know the conditions and you know what to expect, so it is much more beneficial to be at home than away.”
The UJ star said he was pleased with his performances this season.
“At the moment everything is working out well and I’m hoping for the best in my career,” said Mogaila.
“I would like to play professionally and earn a place in one of the PSL teams.
“In the long-term I have the Bafana Bafana squad as a goal because I really would love to represent my country.”
In the meantime, he stressed he was enjoying his football with the UJ team and had been working well with his teammates this season.
“We really look forward to playing and we are just taking it one game at a time.
“The plan is to keep it simple and we are enjoying doing that, which is why we are having a good run at the moment.”
