Tusker FC Captain Joseph Shikokoti says that they will edge out Azam in the finals of the Mapinduzi Cup, set for play on Saturday 12 January.
Tusker are yet to cross the semi-finals and will need to take down Zanzibar’s Miembeni in their penultimate round match, to be played on Thursday 10 starting 2000hrs.
Shikokoti, who picked a red-card in earlier stages of the tournament, will sit out of the semi-final, which he says is as good as won.
-This title is ours. By beating Simba, Azam have shown that they are a strong team, but I am sure, they will be no match for ours. We shall beat them when we meet, Shikokoti told Bin Zubeiry.
Tusker are using the tournament as part of their preparation for the upcoming African Champions League.
