As the premier league comes to an end, at this point some teams just play to complete the fixtures, while others are fighting for their fate in the premier league for the next season.
Mbao FC from Mwanza promised their fans to emerge victorious over Kagera Sugar, their Lake Zone rivals in Tanzania Premier League. The match will be played today at Kirumba Stadium from 1600 hours.
Mbao FC assist Head Coach Mr. Fulgence Novatus, said they know, it is an important match for their future and it will be a tough one too, but they are ready to perform and make sure they stay in the premier league the coming season.
“We know our position in the league, although it is not so safe and we must get a win to remain in the league and bring joy to our fans here in Mwanza because it is our target” said Fulgence.
He further explained that he knows the match will be tough because Kagera Sugar is not as safe either, which means they need a win to secure a space in Premier league.
Mbao plan to use the ‘home ground advantage’ together with their fans to get a win. Mbao is in the 15th place with 44 points and Kagera Sugar are with 43 points in the 16 place.
Any win can secure a spot in the premier league next season between the two, and the loser may secure a spot in the delegation zone.
