Tusker reach Mapinduzi Cup semis



Kenyan champions Tusker FC are into the semifinals of the Mapinduzi Cup in Zanzibar where they will meet Miembeni.

The brewers have had a good run in the annual tournament, winning two of their three games so far. They opened their account with a 5-1 thrashing of Bandari before following it up with a 1-1 draw against Tanzanian champions Simba before winning their last group game 1-0 against Jamhuri to top their group.

Now they will play Miembeni on Wednesday 9 January 2013 at the Amaan Stadium. The second last-four duel will pit Tanzanian giants Azam and Simba against each other.

Tusker head coach Robert Matano is happy with his team’s efforts at the competition to date.

“It is good practice and as you have seen we have done well with a changed squad,” said Matano.

“The new players have stood up well to the challenge and have performed. We however need to continue working to find the perfect balance we need for the coming season. There are many challenges this season which we must look to do well in, so we need to be well prepared,” concluded Matano.

Tusker will take part in the Caf Champions League this term and will also hope to do well in the other major competitions like the Kenyan Premier League which they won in 2012, as well as the KPL Top 8 and FK Cup.
