SIMBA said all necessary precautions will be taken into consideration ahead of their CAF Champions League return leg match against Nyasa Big Bullets at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam tomorrow.
The two teams meet in a decisive match that will decide who deserves a ticket to the CAF Champions League’s first round.
Simba have already stepped one foot into the next stage after producing a comfortable 2-0 win in their first leg encounter at Bingu National Stadium in Malawi last week.
Ahead of tomorrow’s match, Simba’s Media and Communications Manager Ahmed Ally has remarked that they are aware that their opponents will approach the match with aggressiveness.
“We know that they will come with mentality to surprise us contrary with the way they played in the first match and here we need to be cautious.
“For us, we just need to be well prepared because in football anything can happen. The game is not yet over that is why we deserve to undergo thorough drills so that upon the sound of the final whistle, we should be the ones smiling,” he narrated.
Commenting on the Serbian striker Dejan Georgijevic who has not been featured in recent matches by his club, Ahmed remarked that it is just a matter of time before he starts playing.
“Nothing is wrong with him. When the interim Head Coach Juma Mgunda sees him fit to play, he is going to play without any problem,” he said.
Mgunda is eyeing to maintain a 100 per cent performance at the helm of the Msimbazi Street Reds as he has guided them to two victories in Champions League and Premier League.
Their past league game was a 1-0 triumph against resilient Tanzania Prisons as Simba had to wait until in the 85th minute to score courtesy of Jonas Mkude’s strike.
