The final 2021 Tanzanian Premier League table is a brilliant indicator of how clubs have performed this season and is a good predictor for the games to come.
The first part of the season has seen the two big clubs, Young Africans and Simba, as the front runners for the league title, while Biashara United and Kagera Sugar are the favourites to be relegated in the 16 team’s top division.
Dodoma Jiji is in sixth place on the table. In their 11 games played, they have a record of four wins, four draws and have lost only three games so far. They have accumulated 16 points, seeing them battling out for the top three spots with the likes of Polisi Tanzania, Coastal Union, who are in third and fourth place with 17 points and fifth-placed Mbeya City, who are on 16 points.
2022 does indeed promise to be a fruitful year for Dodoma Jiji. The team has performed well this season, and the team’s collective effort has seen them average a goal per game. If they replicate the form they showed in 2021, the new year can see them rise up the ranks of the league to vie for the CAF Confederations Cup.
The external support system of the club’s management and sponsorship from 10bet Africa will provide the coaching staff and players with the necessary resources for them to be able to go out and represent the club and make the fans proud.
On Saturday, 15 January, Dodoma Jiji will resume their league campaign when they host Geita Gold at the Jamhuri Stadium. Dodoma Jiji will want to kick start the new year with a positive result, and Head coach Mbawan Makata will have had a lot of his time plan for the game and see how they can topple Geita Gold.
Geita Gold go into the encounter with a form run of two wins, two losses and one draw. They ended 2021 with a 1-1 draw with Mbeya Kwanza. That one point took them to ninth place on the table. They will search for a positive result and want to jump in the top half.
Dodoma Jiji will not want to make it easy for Geita Gold, and they are keen to return to the winning way after losing their recent match against Yanga. The home advantage will count in favour of Dodoma Jiji, who tend to do well at home games.
They will keep on the trend of winning their home games when they meet Geita Gold. Dodoma is a firm favourite to win 2-0 on Saturday.
