Foreign professionals will boost Biashara United in VPL-coach

BIASHARA United head coach, Kenyan Francis Baraza, says the clearance of seven foreign players has boosted morale in his squad's camp ahead of Sunday's Vodacom Premier League game against Ruvu Shooting at Mabatini ground in Coast Region.

He said the seven foreign professionals who were recruited by his side this season were not featured in their previous three games and he is confident that the players' presence wil help team perform well on Sunday.

Biashara United, in the absence of the seven players, won 1-0 against Gwambina FC in their first clash, the second match saw Biashara United beat Mwadui FC 1-0.

The Musoma outfit later conceded 4-0 to Simba SC in the third clash which took place in Dar es Salaam last weekend.

“We played our past three games without the services of our new seven players as they were not cleared by authorities, but now we have secured their clearances and they will be ready for our Sunday game against Ruvu Shootings,'' Baraza disclosed.

''I have this good feeling that on Sunday we will record the needed points.''

Baraza could not mention the seven players but he said there are two Kenyans, two Ugandans, two Nigerians and one from Ghana.

The Kenyan tactician said after the 4-0 lose in the hands of Simba he has devised a better strategy which will inspire his charges during the Sunday game.

He conceded that this season's Premier League is extremely tough, but they are preparing well for the coming encounter.

“Our Sunday opponents are a good team, they play good football, they have good players but we are preparing to face them and I'm sure we will post good results,'' he noted.

Ruvu Shooting, through the squad's information officer Masau Bwire, warned every VPL outfit visiting Mabatini ground, saying the venue is the former's fortress.

He said Ruvu Shooting head coach, Charles Boniface Mkwasa, is drilling the players ahead of the game.

“We are preparing well for our game against Biashara United, we want to give our supporters something to smile on,'' he insisted.

''I'm asking all football lovers to come on Sunday in big number to watch classic and entertaining football by Ruvu Shooting.''

''Let also me take this opportunity to warn all football teams coming to our home ground, Mabatini venue, that the place is our fort, we can not manage to drop points at our backyard,” he said.

Ruvu Shooting started this season with an away goalless draw with Mtibwa Sugar, the former later lost 1-0 away to Ihefu FC before beating Gwambina FC 1-0 at Mabatini venue.
