Simba SC head coach Sven Vandenbroeck claims that their plan is to win four matches to claim the Mainland Premier League title.
The Wekundu wa Msimbazi are in prime position to defend their league title as they sit at the top of the table with 71 points.
They are actually 17 points ahead of second-placed Azam FC who are on 54 points.
The league is expected to return in June and Vandenbroeck is very sure the target will be achieved.
“The plan of the team is to win 12 points and then we reset our focus on the FA Cup competition,” Vandenbroeck was quoted by the club’s official website.
“If we are going to get those points then we are going to witness regular squad rotation in order to give other players chances which they might not have had,” he added.
Vandenbroeck expects players to be fully fit
Vandenbroeck claims that he is expecting to find his players to be fit because they were given individual training programs.
All players have been away since mid-April when the Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF) suspended the leagues.
“I am confident the majority of them adhered to the training programs that were given after the league was suspended.”

“We will get to know the exact state of their physical fitness once we start training again. We will start from there,” he noted.
All teams to play at one venue
The Belgian tactician also lauded the government’s directive that all their matches be played in Dar es Salaam.
“Playing all matches at one centre will have the home teams enjoy advantages but again it will be a great advantage for the country.”
“This is because the spread of Covid-19 will be checked effectively,” the former Zambia national team head coach added.
