JKT Ruvu eye top five status in VPL

JKT Ruvu assistant coach Mrage Kabange has said his team will train throughout the Mainland Premier League’s brief rest as the side is keen on landing a place in the league’s top five positions.


JKT Ruvu, which is currently in the tenth position in the league’s standing, is continuing training at the Mlalakuwa ground in Dar es Salaam.
Kabange said his team is training intensively to ensure it does not face relegation to the National First Division League.

"Our team won’t face relegation, that is why the team is training during the brief rest,” he said.

JKT Ruvu has collected 12 points from 13 outings, having won three, suffered defeat in seven and managed draw in the rest.

He said his players will continue training with a view to ensure the team performs well in the Mainland Premier League assignments.

The league has been put on hold to give room for the Mapinduzi Cup tournament, which has been slated to take place in Zanzibar from January 1 to 13.

The league is expected to resume on January 16 with several matches to be played in different venues across the country.

JKT Ruvu has been scheduled to host Mgambo Shooting of Tanga at the Karume Memorial Stadium in Dar es Salaam on January 16.

In the day’s other matches, Toto Africans will host Prisons of Mbeya at the CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza, whereas Simba will entertain Mtibwa Sugar of Morogoro at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

In other games, Stand United will face Kagera Sugar at the former’s venue, Kambarage Stadium, in Shinyanga and Mbeya City FC will take on Mwadui FC of Shinyanga at the former’s venue, Sokoine Stadium.

Coastal Union will host Majimaji of Ruvuma at the Mkwakwani Stadium in Tanga, whereas Azam FC will confront Africans Sport of Tanga at the former’s venue, Azam Complex, in Dar es Salaam.
