Yanga, whose hopes of defending the league’s title went up in smokes after conceding a 1-0 defeat to Kagera Sugar at the Kaitaba Stadium in Kagera last week, will all but seek to at least finish in the third position and, for that matter, victory over their hosts is a must should they realize the target.
With rivals, Simba, almost about to lay hands on silverware, Yanga’s chances to somewhat appease their already disappointed fans lie on beating Polisi, as well as overcoming Arusha’s JKT Oljoro and Simba in the last two games. The Jangwani Street side, though, is up against the opponents that are still battling to avoid relegation to the National First Division League and, therefore, stiff opposition will likely be in store for the former.
Polisi Dodoma, currently languishing at the bottom of the league’s table with paltry 17 points from 24 matches, will definitely need a win over Yanga to climb out of the danger zone and that means they have to come out firing on all cylinders in search of the crucial three points.
Victory over Yanga on Sunday and in the last match against Oljoro JKT at the Sheikh Amri Abeid Stadium in Arusha on May 5, this year, will see Polisi Dodoma collect 23 points and leapfrog Villa Squad to take the 11th position, which will effectively help them avoid relegation.
Polisi’s chances to remain in the Mainland top flight next season, though, will depend on results that other lowly sides, African Lyon and Moro United, will attain in their respective last matches scheduled for the same date.
