League continues, eight teams in action

DAR ES SALAAM: EIGHT teams battle for crucial three points to secure favourable positions in the Mainland Premier League standings.

The first match pits Mtibwa Sugar against Ihefu at 2:00pm seconded by an entertaining clash involving third placed Simba versus Geita Gold set to kick-off at 4:00pm. Later in the day at 6:15pm, Kagera Sugar host Singida Fountain Gate, while KMC takes on Coastal Union at 8:00pm.

Ahead of the showdown between Simba and Geita FG, coaches discussed their team preparations. Simba SC goalkeeping coach Daniel Cadena anticipates a tough match despite his team’s lack of injuries.

“We are ready for tomorrow’s (today) match. It won’t be an easy game due to the quality of the opponents, but the good thing is we have no injured players,” Cadena said.

Geita Gold Assistant Coach Lucas Mlingwa acknowledges the challenge Simba presents but emphasises their readiness.

“We respect their size, experience, and exposure. We know Simba is in good form, and we are prepared to face them,” Mlingwa stated.

Mlingwa stressed that regardless of the outcome, they won’t make excuses and will play cautiously against them. In the league standings, Simba sit in 3rd place with 30 points, while Geita rank 10th with 19 points.

A victory for Simba over Geita would propel them to 2nd place, just one point above Azam FC. If Geita win, they will tie with Coastal Union in points, potentially overtaking or being overtaken by them depending on goal difference.
