Simba thrash Toto to extend lead

SIMBA Sports Club continues to excel in the ongoing Mainland premier soccer league after beating visiting Toto Africans by 3-0 goals in their first leg match played at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam yesterday.

Simba striker Mohammed Ibrahim (C) negotiates his way past Toto Africans defenders during their Mainland premier soccer league match played at the Uhuru Stadium in Dares Salaam yesterday. Simba won 3-0.

New sign-up Muzamir Yassin who lo0ks to be in superb form gave the visitors hectic moment when he scored a brace to take his tally for the season to three. He scored Simba opener on the brink of half time mark as Simba progre4ssed into the dressing room with massive psychological mood.

Another new sign-up Laudit Mavugo, who replaced Blagnon in the second half increased the lead to three as Simba fans were kept spellbound to cheer their team. It was a sweet revenge for the Dar side that suffered a humiliating one goal defeat at the same venue during the previous season.

Toto never looked like a side that would have troubled Simba throughout the match as they failed to find a breakthrough.

This is the second back to back defeat for Toto who also lost home game to visiting Young Africans by four goals during the midweek fixture before travelling to Dar es Salaam.

Simba have extended their points collection to 29 while maintaining their rollercoaster display to eleven games since the season kicked off on August 20.

With four matches before end of the first half of the season, Toto are still floating on relegation pool with eight points to their collection.

Simba on the other hand have stretched their lead to eight points over second-placed Young Africans who handed Kagera Sugar a six-goal rout a day before at the Kaitaba Stadium in Bukoba.

Simba who rested their play maker Ibrahim Ajib in yesterday’s match, now focus on their second upcountry match against improved Mwadui and Stand United in mid and end of the week fixtures, respectively.

Simba might be the first team to hit over 30 points mark this season should they win in Shinyanga while maintaining unbeaten run to twelve games.

Playing under their Cameroon’s coach Joseph Omog, Simba have dropped only four points in their two draws, one with archrivals Young Africans and the other during a match against Ruvu JKT.
