Ngushi went as far as saying he has what it takes to net seven goals in the clash whenever he gets a chance.

The forward noted they have been failing to get good results in the first half of each of their previous matches.

"I can score up to seven goals if I get chances, we have been coming from behind to equalize, this was due to the strangeness but now we are used to it so we do not expect mistakes to recur," the attacker that has registered three goals noted.

The teams are meeting for the first time, with Mbeya Kwanza being the league's newcomer thus making the match a record and history.

While the Mbeya outfit continues to prepare for the domestic top-flight game against Yanga, the former's head coach Haruna Harerimana said they are aware that they are facing a popular team, so they will put spirited displays to get three points.

The match between the two teams is expected to be played on Tuesday next week, with the tie being the first between the two teams.

Speaking during the squad's practice at the College of Science and Technology (MUST) ground recently, Haruna said Yanga are such a great team and they, as they are in the Premier League, will do great things to stay with three points.

He said there are no easy matches in the Premier League, expressing happiness over the return of some of his club's footballers that were nursing injuries, and the player who had been serving a ban.

The players are skipper Salum Chuku, Hamis Kanduru, and Japheth Majagi, who was sent off in the last match against Prisons.

"We are not under pressure because it is a normal match and there are players who have played in the Premier League so they are not afraid it is like other matches we will play normally we will be careful with all Yanga players,'' Haruna noted.

Mbeya Kwanza FC's goalkeeper, Hamad Kadedi, said he was well prepared to help his team, explaining that it will hardly be the first time he had met the historic champions.

The shot-stopper was adamant he would be extra vigilant to prevent what happened to him last season when he allowed a last-minute goal against Yanga whilst he was featuring for Shinyanga's Stand United FC.

"I met Yanga while playing for Stand United FC, so I don't see any pressure but I urge my teammates to be careful not to allow them to score like in the previous match,'' Kadedi noted.
