Shanzu United will take their South Coast Provincial Zone ‘A’ match against SS Assad like any other match.
Speaking ahead of the much hyped tie, Shanzu United Coach James Sewe Ochieng said they have a lot of respect for their opponents.
-We respect SS Assad. They deserve to be where they are (third place). We expect a tough match but we are all prepared and hope to collect maximum points.
-To us there is no home or away advantage. That’s how we managed to beat Supper Eagles at their backyard in Changamwe, said Ochieng
Shanzu United, buoyed by 2-1 win over second placed Supper Eagles on Sunday 9 September 2012 travel to meet SS Assad at Mzimuni in Ukunda on Sunday 16 September.
Ochieng hopes that the team’s prolific scorer Sunday Ngala will be in form to prosecute the opponents. Ngala is the second highest scorer with 12 goals, one less than Musa Tumaini of SS Assad.
-If Assad boast of Tumaini, Ngala will give them a run for their money, quipped Ochieng
Shanzu are leading Zone ‘A’ log with 35 points, five points more than third placed SS Assad.
