Yanga - Welyata Dicha
Goal takes a look back at the current Yanga squad and predicts the starting line up

Following their first leg 2-0 home victory, Yanga will be away for the second leg clash of the CAF Confederation Cup against Ethiopia’s Wolayta Dicha on Wednesday in Awassa.

Yanga head into this game without their Head Coach George Lwandamina who led them in the first leg win in Dar es Salaam.

That was the last match for the Zambian who left the club and rejoined his former club Zesco United in a two year deal last week.

The Jangwani outfit will be under caretaker coaches Noel Mwandila and Shadrack Nsajigwa who are in charge while the search for a new coach continues.

Yanga will need to escape defeat in order to book a place in the group stage for the second time in three seasons.

The Jangwani club will be boosted by the return of key players, Obrey Chirwa, Kelvin Yondani, Juma Said and Papy Tshishimbi who missed the first leg due to suspension.

Goal takes a look back at the current Yanga squad and predicts the starting line up

Youthe Rostand

His mistake in the last Premier League game against Singida United at the Benjamini Mkapa National Stadium denied Yanga a decisive victory.

May be this is the reason for Yanga caretaker bosses to include Beno Kakolanya in the travelling squad but Rostand will still get the nod on goal, this is because of his experience and match fitness.

Hassan Kessy

Kessy has finaly started to reach the dizzy heights that won him his move to the Jangwani outfit.

He initially struggled to overcome Juma Abdul for a starting berth but since the beginning of the season he has made the right full-back spot his.

Hajji Mwinyi

Hajji Mwinyi could be in the starting line-up over Gadiel Michael because of match fitness. Michael was sidelined in the past three matches due to an injury and it’s doubtful that he will be thrown directly into the game.

Abdallah Shaibu “Ninja”

He will be eager to continue with his impressive form which he has shown in the past two games against Dicha in Dar es Salaam and Singida United.

Ninja had an uncertain future at Yanga after his poor start to life at the club, but all that changed when he came in to replace the suspended Kelvin Yondani in the first leg clash with Dicha and his performances were eye catching ones.

He retained his place during the Premier League game against Singida United to replace the injured Vincente Andrew and he rewarded his coach with an equalizing goal.

Kelvin Yondani

He will go directly into the starting line-up after being left out the squad in the first leg due to the suspension.

Juma Said

This is the kind of game which Juma Said likes the most, Yanga will be away and they will expect a lot of balls to be possessed by the home side.

Juma will be in the starting line-up because he is a very good player when his team are without the ball.

Papy Tshishimbi

He is one of Yanga’s best players this season and his availability will be a huge boost to Yanga after missing the first leg in Dar es Salaam.

Pius Buswita

He will be deployed as a number ten as usual, his movement is key for Yanga up front and he has contributed to a lot of goals this season.

Yusuph Mhilu

The young star has the potential to become a great player. He played a key role in both goals when the two teams met for the first time in Dar es Salaam and he will be eager to continue with his recent impressive form.

Obrey Chirwa

He is out of form but his presence up front will cause some troubles to the home side. He will be selected to start because there isn't anyother fit senior forward at the moment.

Emmanuel Martin

The unsung hero, he will get a nod to start because of the absence of Ibrahim Ajib. His work rate with or without a ball will be key for Yanga throughout the game.
