Majimaji have porous defence

OF all the 16 Mainland soccer league teams, Songea-based Majimaji that gained promotion into the premiership berth this season is leading with the most porous defence.

The Songea team has conceded a total of 29 goals up to the end of the first half of the season that ended last week.

The team has blunt strikers and managed to score paltry nine goals in 15 matches of 90 minutes durations. Posting three wins and as many draws; the team has lost nine matches to claim 12 points. Their points tally matches with another southern Tanzania premiership side of Ndanda and JKT Ruvu.

Majimaji meet JKT Ruvu at the Karume Memorial Stadium in Dar es Salaam this weekend. Majimaji, JKT Fuvu and Ndanda are just above the relegation borderline but still not safe from relegation as the other three teams floating inside the drop off zone have an opportunity to earn points.

The negative goal aggregates of 20 goals make Majimaji to be highly vulnerable when it comes to goal computations in the event the team tallies in points with another at the end of the season.

Top of the table Young Africans have the tightest of the defences having conceded the lowest number of goals in 15 appearances. Yanga have allowed in five goals and banged n 36 to attain the most efficient goal aggregates of 31, a fact that has pushed them to edge Azam despite similarity in points. Both Azam and Yanga remain unbeaten at the end of the first half of the season. The premiership action resumes this weekend at various stadiums across the Mainland.
