KMC FC registered its first win of the Premier League against Azam FC in a 2-1 win over the latter at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Sunday.

According to a statement issued by KMC FC's information officer, Christina Mwagala, the Kinondoni Municipal Council-owned club convoy will include 21 players, a technical bench, and officials.

The official disclosed KMC FC has traveled with the contingent to see to it that the team goes to Mbeya to get good results in the game even though the outfit will be away.

Christina noted: "So far the preparations have been going on well since the end of the NBC Premier League sixth round match against Azam FC played on November 21 at Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam and emerged with a two-goal victory.''

She added in the statement: ''The team continued with preparations last evening."

"Even though the game will be very competitive, the technical bench, made up of head coach John Simkoko and his assistants, Habibu Kondo and Hamadi Ally, continues to strengthen itself towards the game and that the goals and strategies for the team can achieve significant victories.''

"We are going to a competitive game away from home, we are not considering that we are playing home or away, what we are doing is preparing for our important game.''

''Mbeya City is a good team and we have seen good results, so we know that so in our preparations we are going to fight for three points," the KMC FC statement issued by Christina noted.

"But even more we thank God that in the last game we did not have any injured player, so the whole squad is strong and morale is also high, especially our fans continue to support us as they have always done, we need to fight hard from the position we are in now.''

KMC FC has failed to keep any clean sheet this season and the squad is optimistic of solving its defensive woes.
