🇹🇿 Yanga back to winning ways as battle for the second intensifies

Ditrim Nchimbi was the hero of the afternoon as he bagged a brace that saw Yanga register their first win five matches. Yanga remain fourth on the log with 44 points two behind Namungo.

Namungo beat Lipuli 2-1 to keep up with Azam who are second with 48 points. Azam were 1-0 victors away at JKT while Kagera Sugar played to a 1-1 draw with Prisons.

Singida woes were compounded after going down 1-0 to Polisi at home and are firmly deep in the relegation zone. Ruvu Shooting beat Mbao 2-0 to consolidate their sixth place while Biashara won 1-0 against Mbeya City to move to tenth with 35 points.
