Simba coach, Joseph Omog believes this weekend's win over Mbeya City will set a good tone for his sides upcoming fixture against Tanzania Prisons next Saturday.

Tricky winger Shiza Kichuya’s first-half goal was enough for Simba to down Mbeya 1-0 on Sunday and climb to the summit of the Ligi Kuu Bara on goal difference.

Kichuya latched onto Jonas Mkude's long pass and unleashed a thunderbolt which gave Fikilini Bakari in the no chance in Mbeya's goals. 

Simba had chances to extend their lead but Emmanuel Okwi and John Bocco were guilty of squandering two glorious efforts. Mbeya, on the other hand, also had their chances but couldn't break down the resistance Simba backline.

Simba are now tied on 19 points with Azam FC but the Msimbazi Street giants are on top because of their superior of goal difference.
