Azam FC assistant coach Bahati Vivier claims that his side will do whatever it takes to eliminate Simba SC from the FA Cup.
The two giants were pooled together in the draw which was conducted on Friday in Dar es Salaam.
This will be the third time this season for the two teams to meet with the first two won by Simba SC 1-0 and 3-2 consecutively.
“We have followed the draw and we are coming up against Simba who are leading the league table.
“The match will definitely be difficult and I am sure all teams will fight to sail through,” Bahati Vivier said before adding.
“I am sure we will prepare our team well, we will be up to the task to handle them.”
“We have met against Simba twice in the league and they won twice, but this will not be a league match but a knockout battle.”
“Our main target is to revenge against them, we must beat them after they managed to win twice in the league.”
“We don’t fear them, we will be ready for them and I know we will knock them out,” Bahati Vivier added.
