Yanga set Polisi Tanzania on target

YOUNG Africans continue to brush up ahead of their 13th NBC Premier League match against Polisi Tanzania at Sheikh Amri Abeid Stadium in Arusha tomorrow.

It will be a tough game to both teams as each will be salivating to collect vital three points to keep climbing up the league ladders as the race towards the finishing line of the championship escalates.

Last season,when the two sides met at Ushirika Stadium in Moshi, Polisi Tanzania equalised in the 89th minute to salvage a point which was much better to them hence, nobody knows what the scoreboard will read after the game.

They face off with a 14-point gap existing between them as Yanga have 32 points at the driving seat of the table while the hosts parade 18 points and are among the best performing sides in the unfolding campaign.

The Jangwani street giants go into the game with heads up after winning 2-0 in their previous match against Coastal Union at Mkwakwani Stadium in Tanga where they broke a four-season winless run at the venue.

They, however, had a midweek friendly match at Sheikh Amri Abeid arena against First League side Mbuni FC to keep the squad energetic before facing their league opponents and they managed to win 2-0 courtesy of a spot-kick brace by MukokoTonombe.

On the day,Yanga fraternity, were satisfied with the way their newly signed player from TP Mazembe Chicco Ushindi played as he was featured in the second half replacing Deus Kaseke.

He might,therefore, be deployed to make his Premier League debut for the current league toppers and this will depend on the preference of Head Coach Nasreddine Nabi who is adamant to pocket his first top flight league title.

For Polisi Tanzania, they will try to become the first side to upset Yanga this season as 12 teams have so far failed to achieve that hence the ball is in their court to do whatever they want with it.

They have good players among them is the former Yanga goalkeeper, Metacha Mnata who is the first choice shot-stopper at the Moshi- based club and will play to prove wrong his ex-employer.

He was in goal for Yanga when they were held to a 1-1 draw at Ushirika Stadium last term as many Yanga fans accused him of deliberately conceding the equalising goal.

From 12 games, Polisi Tanzania have won four matches, drawing six encounters and losing two duels.
