Pappy Tshishimbi and Vincent Andrew “Dante” have a chance of returning to the Yanga squad for Monday’s Ligi Kuu clash with Stand United.

Tshishimbi missed the Kagera Sugar win on Friday because of illness and Dante has been absent for the last couple of matches because of an ankle injury.

Speaking to Goal, Yanga’s team Manager, Hafidh Saleh said that the duo could make a return after stepping up their recovery.

“We have good news after two players comeback from injuries, Tshishimbi who missed the last game through illness will be available while Dante who sustained injury since February will be ok for selection against Stand United,” said Saleh.

Yanga will host Stand United at the National Stadium knowing that the win will help them to catch Simba SC on top of the Ligi Kuu table.

In the first Ligi Kuu match which held in Shinyanga, Yanga won by 4-0. Currently, Yanga sit second on the table three points adrift leaders Simba and they have won eight games in row.
Stand United sit tenth on the table won just once in their last five games.

After the match, Yanga will travel to Gaborone, Botswana to face Township Rollers in the second leg of the CAF Champions League.
