Dar es Salaam Young Africans (Yanga) gets their first narrow win with a 1-0 over the ‘New Comers’ Njombe Mji at Sabasaba Ground in Njombe.
The visitors had to be patient in the first half as Njombe Mji stuck diligently to their defensive duties, with Yanga's side dominating possession.
Jangwani Boys had created little but showed their ruthless streak when Ibrahim Ajib scored from the edge of the area, converting his team's first clear chance on goal, after 16 minutes of the first half.
Yanga squandered chances to put the game to bed in the second half with Gadiely Michael, Donald Ngoma, Pap Kabamba Tshishimbi and all failing to double their lead. Their wastefulness ensured an unnecessarily nervy finish as the hosts tried in vain to grab an unlikely equaliser.
Njombe Mji senior player Ditram Mchimbi showed his vast experience in Vodacom premier league played well but he was not on his luck.
