Tanzania Simba must change tactics to be at their best – Benchikha

Simba SC coach Abdelhak Benchikha said his team needs to keep improving tactically as they were forced to a 2-2 draw by Kinondoni Municipal Council (KMC) at Azam Complex Stadium in Dar es Salaam over the weekend.

Bennchikha revealed that on Saturday after his side failed to earn victory after squandering its winning chance in the dying minutes of the game emphasising that they can’t accept such results of dropping points in such condition.

“I understand in football mistakes are there but we can’t keep letting this thing happen. We need to improve tactically and get good results for our fans,” he explained.

However, the coach said he will use the international breaks and the Mapinduzi Cup tournament to improve his squad as they have a lot to catch up on. The 2-2 draw leaves Simba in third place as they collected 23 points, behind their great rivals Young Africans (Yanga SC) who have 27 points, and Azam FC on top of the mainland league with 31 points.

However, after their dramatic draw with Simba, KMC coach Abdi Hamid Moallin was so proud of his team as they managed to fight well until the end of the game which made them earn one point against one of the toughest teams in the league.

“We worked very hard before the game, that’s why my players gave their best on the pitch and I am proud of my team’s performance as they showed a competitive game,” he explained.
