Bandari FC defender Felly Mulumba is optimistic the dockers will collect maximum points against promoted side Nakumatt.
The Coastal-based side has made impressive signings this season but the best of them is coach Paul Nkata, who steered Tusker FC to a double last season. Mulumba is however, expecting a tough match against the newcomers.
"Definitely we want to start the season on a positive note, we are going for maximum points against them. They, Nakumatt, are a good side with good players, and we have to treat the match with the seriousness it deserves, three points are what we are looking for in this match," Mulumba told Goal.
The Congolese import praised the arrival of coach Nkata promising a tough season for their opponents. "Nkata is like a father figure to us, he has given us the best and we believe we are going to have a better season."
Bandari finished in the eleventh position last season and are aiming to better the ranking.
