Pamba SC out to stun Coastal Union in playoff

MWANZA's Pamba SC will be keen on landing promotion to the next season's Mainland Premier League as they lock horns with Coastal Union in the return leg of the top flight's relegation/promotion playoffs at Mkwakwani Stadium in Tanga today.

The teams drew 2-2 in the first leg match, which took place at Nyamagana Stadium in Mwanza on Wednesday.

Pamba SC, made up of 25 players, six technical bench officials, and four team leaders, arrived at Mwanza airport two days ago and headed to Tanga via Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA).

The outfit was set to take a car from Kilimanjaro to transport them to Tanga.

Mwanza's Regional Administrative Secretary, Ngussa Samike, bade Pamba SC farewell, noting he was optimistic they will win promotion to the Premier League.

Samike pointed out that it is a shame for Mwanza to have no representative in the domestic top-flight.

The official was adamant the city will continue supporting Pamba SC and other sides, including Toto Africans, Mbao FC, and Alliance FC.

Samike, who opted out of revealing the support they provided to Pamba SC, pointed out they have ensured that the club's players get their dues.

The official noted they have also done their best to facilitate Pamba SC's participation in the playoffs.

Samike stated Mwanza has high hopes that the outfit will emerge victoriously.

Jamal Abdul, the region's soccer stakeholder, promised the players that the team's stakeholders are prepared in every way to ensure that incentives are in place for the players if they emerge victorious away to Coastal Union.

"I urge you to go and bring victory, I promise you you will be happy, we assure you that you will be happy, we and all other stakeholders are prepared to ensure you achieve success'' Abdul told Pamba SC players.

Pamba SC will face Coastal Union in the return leg of playoffs, seeking to land a place in the Premier League next season.
