Ruvu Shooting have formerly been demoted to the championship league after conceding 3-0 defeat to Simba.
The match at Azam Complex in Dar es Salaam on Friday evening witnessed Clatous Chama netting one goal before a brace from substitute Pape Sakho.
As such, Ruvu Shooting remain plastered at the bottom of the table with 20 points from 28 matches.
If they win their next two games, they will claim 26 points which cannot save them from the yawning relegation jaws.
For Simba, the triumph has driven them to 67 points at the second slot of the Premier League table and are four points adrift leaders Young Africans who face Dodoma Jiji today.
“With this outcome, we are officially out of the premier league next season,” conceded Ruvu Shooting trainer Mbwana Makata after the game.
They are the first team to head into the relegation exit door in the unfolding campaign.
