The VPL leaders are now training at Kigamboni in Dar es Salaam, preparing for their Premier League games and the Federation Cup.

Yanga will take on Kinondoni Municipal Council (KMC) FC in a top flight clash at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in the city on April 10.

Since being signed by Yanga from Morogoro's Mtibwa Sugar in January transfer window, he has not played for Yanga due to a muscle injury that sidelined him since January this year.

Commenting on Yanga's training, Job said: "We are progressing well with the preparations for our next Premier League games and the Federation Cup, we have had a long period of preparation under coach Mwambusi.''

He noted: "The coach has improved a lot of aspects including boosting our confidence and tactics to seek victory, so, I believe we will show great changes in our next games.''

Mwambusi noted that the preparations are held smoothly. He disclosed he, in the process, happy and he hopes his team will get good results in the matches.

Their next Mainland Premier League match is against KMC FC

When the two squads locked horns in the domestic top flight's first phase clash, which took place at CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza, Yanga beat KMC FC 2-1.

Yanga were then under the tutelage of Cedric Kaze who was sacked on March 7 for what was described as the team's poor performance.

Mwambusi said: ''The players are getting stronger and ready for the upcoming matches, even in practice they seem to be strong, which is a good thing.''

"The biggest thing I believe they will do is making a difference and get good results in future matches as everything is going on well," he said.

Yanga are placed first in the Premier League's standing with 50 points after playing a total of 23 matches.

They are followed by Simba SC in the second place with 46 points after taking part in 20 fixtures.
