Mwadui float on relegation pool

WHILE fans are still giving them huge benefit of doubt, Mwadui are floating on early relegation waves after six rounds of play in the Mainland premier soccer league.

Jamhuri Kihwelu

The Jamhuri Kihwelu-coached side has been performing dismally in their six league encounters to earn only five points, same as Toto African, Ruvu JKT and newly promoted Mbao FC.

However, Mwadui has the worst goal aggregate as contrasted to the other three teams that share five points.

The only victory Mwadui has posted in the six appearances was against newly promoted Mbao FC at the CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza on August 27.

The team has lost three matches at the hands of Kagera Sugar, Toto Africa and holders Young Africans. The other two points Mwadui has garnered was during a match against rivals Stand United and recently with Tanzania Prisons in Mbeya over the weekend.

The diamond miners, who won promotion into the top flight berth the very previous season, are floating in turbulent waters as they need resurgence to recover from the premiership shocks.

Mwadui meet Mbeya City in the round of seven at the Sokoine Stadium in Mbeya on Saturday, in a match they urgently need to win to move outside the relegation pool.

However, they need to be cautious as their hosts have lost the previous round match to Ruvu JKT as coach Kinah Phiri would not afford to extend losing streak.

While fans expect Mwadui to synchronise with the premiership shockwaves after their maiden season, the diamond miners look unstable at this point when contrasted to newly promoted teams of Mbao FC, African Lyon and Ruvu Shooting.

Though Mbao have the same number of points like Mwadui, it was not expected the Mwanza team to share identical statistics with experienced Kihwelu boys.
