Simba still have hope of chasing the title despite massive gap created by their archrivals Yanga as each side has three matches in hand before the season winds up.
However some of their players are in sick bay including striker Dan Lyanga and was ruled out of the camp in Zanzibar.
Simba need to post victories in the rest of their league fixture if they are to really chase the title while praying for Yanga to flop the rest of the matches.
With 58 to their collection, Simba have a poor ceiling of attaining 70 points, a delicate peak that can easily surpassed by both Yanga and second placed Azam FC.
Meanwhile, the Nile Basin regional championship that was scheduled to be hosted by Sudan has been cancelled. Simba was one of the teams earmarked to feature in the event which was inaugurated two years ago and skipped the subsequent edition.
Mbeya City competed in the inaugural edition that was organised by the Council of East and Central Africa Football Associations, CECAFA.
