Favorites Yanga eye win at Kaitaba

Young Africans play away Kagera Sugar in a Tanzania Premier League match at the Kaitaba Stadium in Bukoba
today.

Yanga players

Favorites Yanga go into the game in high morale after beating Mwadui FC 2-1 in their last league match recently.
This will be the second Yanga away match in this season after visiting Mwadui FC at the Kambarage Stadium in Shinyanga at midweek.

Yanga head coach Mwinyi Zahera said his team shall win the game despite leaving behind some players who had different problems, notably striker Ibrahim Ajibu, goalie Benno Kakolanya and defender Kelvin Yondani.

He was hopeful that his team will win the match the way they did in Shinyanga.

Yanga are in second place in the 20-team league at 29 points, behind leaders Azam FC who have 33 points.

Kagera Sugar need to be keen to mark deft attackers like Heritier Makambo and veteran Mrisho Ngassa who played a big role in Yanga’s win in Shinyanga.

Kagera Sugar coach Mecky Mexime needs to be alert so that they don’t allow the Dar es Salaam side to outplay the hosts.
Azam FC defeated Kagera Sugar 1-0 on the same ground.

The Lake Zone side are currently placed 10th with 17 points.
