Young Africans have re-opened a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table courtesy of a 3-0 win over a 10-man Polisi Tanzania.
The duo settled their differences at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Saturday night as the champions continue to reflex their muscles in the marathon.
All the three goals came in the second half from Jesus Moloko (47), Fiston Mayele (77) and substitute Clement Mzize (86).
Mzize scored with his first touch after coming on and it is his second goal in the league and has already contributed four goals in the Azam Sports Federation Cup (ASFC).
The triumph has seen Yanga claiming 41 points from 16 matches while Polisi Tanzania continue to sit at the bottom of the log with only 9 points from 16 games.
Mwinyi Zahera’s men suffered a blow midway in the second half when Ambrose Awio was shown marching orders for a reckless challenge on Moloko.
However, the 16th round of the league expires on this Sunday with two matches as Geita Gold entertains Simba at CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza.
Also, Mbeya City take on Dodoma Jiji at Sokoine Stadium in Mbeya for another big fixture on the day.
