Eh coach said his players have full fitness, commitment and morale ahead of the derby. .

He said his team expects nothing less than victory in the game which many soccer lovers believe has potential to decide the season’s title fate.

“The players are ready to tussle with their archrivals, Yanga is very good side with good and experienced players and playing against them is always a tough encounter, but we are very ready for them this weekend”, he said.

Simba are on the top of the league with 45 points from 19 games as Yanga trail by two points out of their 18 games.

The Saturday game promises to be more entertaining as a win by Yanga will see them removing to the top of the league with 46 points. A victory for Simba will clear their title track with 48 points.

The other interesting point of the game is golden boot title chase between Simba’s Hamis Kiiza who has 16 goals and Amisi Tabwe who has 14 goals.

While top rated archrivals of the premiership battle it out at the National Stadium, another hot title contender Azam will be at the Sokoine Stadium in Mbeya, where they are lined up to meet the Southern Highland’s rejuvenated side of Mbeya City, now under new coach Kina Phiri from Malawi.
