Tanzania football lovers believed that Dar es Salaam’s Young Africa (Yanga)’s match against Ndanda fc today at Uhuru stadium will provide a true gauge for Jangwani Boys’ progress this season, as the Vodacom Premier League (VPL) champions seek points to find a way to the top of the table.
“We are really facing a tough game against Ndanda, but our players should stand strong to get the results,” George Katyega one of the Yanga football fan told Azania Post.
Madaga Lusaganya, another Yanga Africa fan said: “Meeting with Ndanda will be a great test for us, we know that it won’t be easy because we face a really good team, with really talented players. But we only call our players to show them that we are the VPL champions.”
The defending champions have experienced stuttering campaign since this season’s kick off, winning just once in their three opening matches and drawing twice. Yanga are placed seventh on the log on five points.
The Jangwani Street outfit kicked off their title defence campaign with a 1-1 draw with newly promoted Iringa’s Lipuli FC in a closely contested encounter at the Uhuru Stadium on August 27th this year.
In the second round, they registered a slim 0-1 win away to Njombe Mji at the Sabasaba grounds in Makambako on September 10th this year, before striking late to force a 1-1 draw with Majimaji of Songea at the Majimaji Stadium in Songea last Saturday.
