Mtibwa seek heavy re-load in Dec-Jan window

AFTER suffering their fifth loss of the NBC Premier League campaign, Mtibwa Sugar have vowed to re-load their guns during mini-transfer window.

The Morogoro-based side suffered a 1-0 loss to Azam on Tuesday night at Azam Complex to continue piling the misery to sugar planters as the only team win-less team at the end of the seventh round.

Azam's Idris Mbombo headed home in the early minutes of the second half to snatch vital three points from the home territory which to a big extent helped the team to regain winning confidence.

The defeat saw them stuck at the base of the 16-team table with two points generated from two draws they have stamped so far hence the going is getting tough for them as the league gathers storm.

However, speaking after the setback, the club's Information Officer Thobias Kifaru nodded that the ongoing trend by the team is not satisfactory as such; they will make full use of the approaching mini-transfer window. "Our coach Joseph Omog is trying his best to restore back the team and make it a strong side in the league but the challenge he is facing is that he already found a complete team. "What we are planning is to let him (Omog) control the transfer market so that he can bring on board the players he wants in the team and do a great job for the club," said Kifaru.

He added that they had a great match against Azam but could not manage to score from countless opportunities they created throughout the game.

The outcome also made Mtibwa Sugar to be the only side to have lost many games (5) than any other team on the ladder but it is still not too late for them to make a U-turn and get back on the track.

On paper, they have quality players but on how they perform in matches, it leaves many people with unanswered questions despite being among the respected clubs in the country.

For Azam, the victory pushed them to the 6th place with ten points, 9 points inferior to the league leaders Young Africans hence all is not lost for George Lwandamina's team to regroup and have one target.
