Police Morogoro have intensified the fight against relegation after pulling their second back to back victory having floored visiting African Lyon last Saturday.
The team’s narrow but vital lone goal victory pushed them out of the bottom place and might step into the safe horizon should they win their next match against Toto Africa in Mwanza on February 13.
The victory coming courtesy of their new coach Mohamed Rishard has substantially restored hope of the team’s officials, fans and players.
The performance of the cops has thrown the fight against relegation to become wide open as other teams might also fall inside the dreadful zone.
Besides African Lyon who have been condemned to the base of the standings table, Mwanza’s Toto Africa are still floating in the same pool after the end of the 15th round.
More vulnerable to the relegation threat are Ruvu JKT and Tanzania Prisons who have a narrow cushion over the separation borderline.
Beside the relegation escape, the premiership title chase has been interesting particularly after Mtibwa Sugar held pace makers Yanga to a 1-1 draw last Saturday.
The gap at the top has now been reduced to three as Azam FC are second placed in the standings table. Yanga have 33 points after wining ten games and drawing three losing the rest.
Holders samba were leading by a lone goal by the time we went to press yesterday evening. Before the match Simba had 26 points.
