Simba visit JKT Tanzania in Tanga

Defending champions Simba visit JKT Tanzania in a Tanzania Premier League match at the Mkwakwani Stadium in Tanga this afternoon.


JKT Tanzania use the Tanga ground as their home matches when playing Simba and Yanga as fans and supporters of the clubs cannot be accommodated at their home venue, Major General Isamuhyo ground at Mbweni in Dar es Salaam.

This will be Simba’s fourth away game after facing Ndanda FC of Mtwara, Mbao FC of Mwanza and Mwadui FC of Shinyanga.

Simba head coach Patrick Aussems said Mkwakwani Stadium was a bad ground which does not deserve to host premier league matches.

The defending champions will miss the services of Ghanaian defender Asante Kwasi who is injured while Erasto Nyoni and James Kotei are expected to return to the pitch after   a three-month ban by the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF).

Simba have so far collected 23 points from 10 games, won seven games,  drawn once and lost once.

JKT Tanzania have so far collected 18 points from 11 games, having won four games, drawn six games and lost once.

Other matches in the fixtures are newly-promoted Alliance FC hosting Singida United at the Nyamagana grounds in Mwanza while Mtibwa Sugar welcome Ruvu Shooting at the Manungu Complex in Turiani.

Newcomers Biashara FC of Mara host Mbao FC at the Karume ground in Musoma.
