In another semi-final after the draw conducted in Dar es Salaam on Tuesday night, Shinyanga-based Mwadui will have an opportunity to host Azam at their very backyard of Kambarage Stadium on the same day.

Coastal Union is the only team in the Mainland top flight berth to have chalked maximum points over Yanga and Azam when the team visited Mkwakwani early in February. It remains to be seen whether Yanga will avenge the defeat or otherwise.

Coastal Union is at the base of the premiership standings with paltry 19 points and remain as potential relegation candidate.

The Tanga side pulled a surprise but deserving 2-1 goals victory over league leaders Simba during the Federation Cup quarterfinal match played at the National Stadium on Monday this week.
