JKT Ruvu leapfrog into safe horizon

ABDALLAH Kibaden’s coached Ruvu JKT team has leapfrogged into safe horizon of the Mainland premiership standings after hard work to post two back to back victories within five days.


The team which has returned back to its home venue of Mlandizi after abandoning Karume Memorial Stadium, benefitted from the changes to haul additional six precious points to keep afloat their premiership survival mission.

JKT beat vesting Mwadui FC by a lone goal before extending their tentacles to claw another lake side club of Toto Africa by a lone goal last Wednesday.

Kibaden says his team is determined to escape relegation though still the road to eternal safety is still bumpy. “We are making progress but the cluster of points is what worries us as our difference with other struggling teams is very narrow”, said the coach.

The army side has scaled the standings ladder to stay at eleventh position with 21 points in their collection kitty, on level with Mbeya City but separated on goal aggregate.

However, the team has created a narrow two point cushion over the relegation borderline.
African Sports is at the base of the log with paltry 16 points after Tuesday’s catastrophe to lose by five goals at the hands of holders Yanga.
