Agyei who was signed by Simba to replace Cote d’Ivoire’s Vincent Angban, says he is not worried of their opponents during the derby lined up for Saturday at the National Stadium in Dares salaam.

The goalie has urged fans and members of his team to turn out in huge numbers to witness how best is their team while hoping for victory.

Agyei says he takes the game as any other premiership assignments and so far he has already synchronized with the league’s shockwaves.

He says Simba fans should rest assured of superb performance as their team has trained well to gear up for the clash.
The goalkeeper prays to be fit enough for the tie as he promised to stay focused on the game.

Agyei has already featured for Simba in a derby staged in Zanzibar during Mapinduzi Cup tournament last month.

During the game the teams ended regulation in barren draw before he saved penalties in the shootout to send Young Africans packing.

Yanga and Simba ended their first leg encounter tied at 1-1 last October but this time the derby is highly crucial as victory for either side will be a springboard towards title charge.
Simba are two points adrift of their rivals having played one more game.

Young Africans are title holders and they are eagerly intent to scoop a hat-trick to take the silverware for keeps.

While Simba have opened their camp in Zanzibar, Young Africans are still confident of their Pemba camp that has of late been producing profound result during this particular derby.

Yanga won all the two legs the previous season by 2-0 goals to frustrate Simba who have been searching for the premiership title since 2012.
