Coastal Union’s dramatic win over stalwarts Mtibwa Sugar last Sunday has completely titled the standings table particularly at the bottom part,
The Tanga-based top flight side, which was floating deep inside the relegation tunnel, has leapfrogged three other teams to stay away from the drop off zone.
Coastal, now with 14 points, same as African Lyon but separated by superior goal aggregates, is tenth among the 14 teams in the leagues standings.
Their victory, the first since the second half of the season kicked off last week and fourth since regaining the premiership berth last year, has sent shockwaves to African Lyon, Toto Africa and Police Dodoma beside Villa Squad that has been dominating the standings base.
The long leap to the safe horizon has also served as a warning to their next opponents who happen to be Dar es Salaam based Moro United.
Coastal might stay with a peace of mind should they post a victory over Moro United whom they trailed by a point ahead of their clash against Azam FC later yesterday.
The road to the title podium looks to be a tall order mission for Coastal Union as they are 17 points adrift of the pace makers Simba.
So far every team still has an opportunity to win the premiership title with eleven rounds to play though Coastal Union and the rest below the standings have an uphill task to accomplish the mission.
Coastal’s stunning performance resulting from effective squad beefing through the midseason transfer window, has transformed the side into a formidable one in the premiership fleet.
Police Dodoma that shocked JKT Ruvu at the league resumption last week has been dumped inside the relegation tide alongside with permanent partners Villa Squad.
The cops from Dodoma, who meet African Lyon to wind up the 15th round matches at the Chamazi Stadium in Dar es Salaam tomorrow, are in a must win situation if they are serious on escaping the turbulent relegation waves.
While league leadership is held by Simba ahead of their tomorrow’s tricky game against stubborn Oljoro JKT in Dar es Salaam, one of the relegation candidates keep on changing except for Villa Squad.
