Tanzania: Alliance Cement FDL Second Place

MWANZA based Alliance FC head coach, Mbwana Makata has commended his players following their 4-1 victory against Rhino Rangers in the ongoing First Division League match played here over the weekend.

Speaking in a post match interview, Makata said his team played well in both half despite facing stiff opposition from Rhino rangers players. "There was a big pressure on us after losing 1-0 to JKT Oljoro at Ushirika Stadium. We had to apply big force to win the home match and we managed it," Makata said.

The former Tukuyu Stars and Young Africans goalkeeper, Makata said his team's win over Rangers has motivated players to fight hard in all remaining matches to ensure they capture maximum points. "Our target is to play in the Premier League next season, and we are not very far from the desired goal," he said.

Alliance FC opened their goal account in the 29th minute through Zabona Khamis before Athnas Mdamu making it 2-0 in the 40th minute. Khamis assured Alliance the victory in the 79 minute, and seven minutes later, Dickson Ambundo netted the fourth goal.

Samir Mwinshehe scored Rhino Rangers' consolation goal in the 90th minute. But the loss seemed to pain Rhino Rangers Head Coach, Daniel Mangombe who said his team lost despite they had played well.

He went on to blame players for wasting a number of scoring chances they created. Mangoma said they now focus on their next match against Transit Camp. Alliance FC are now placed second after gathering Sixteen points in the their last eight outings.
