Under Mkwasa, Ruvu Shooting picked points that saw them rise from the 10th position to the fourth position during the month as they won three matches and picked draws in another two.

The club registered more points in that period than any other side in the league.

Prince Dube of Azam FC, who is now injured, and Mukoko Tonombe of Yanga are the players who won the September and November player of the month awards respectively.

Before November, Aristica Cioaba then of Azam, and Cedric Kaze of Yanga have also won the coach of the month awards in September and October respectively.

Yanga are the only side yet to be defeated and are leading with 34 points. Azam started off with some good performances but faltered before the eighth matchday. The deteriorating results saw the club make some technical changes which saw Cioaba mutually leave as the head coach.

Cioaba was replaced by the former Yanga and Zesco United coach George Lwandamina who was recently handed a one-year deal.

Simba have lost two games that came in the hands of Ruvu Shooting and Tanzania Prisons.

The consecutive losses forced Wekundu wa Msimbazi to sack the team manager Patrick Rweyemamu and the goalkeeping coach Muharami Mohamed.

JKT Tanzania, Mwadui FC and Ihefu FC are at the bottom of the table. The three clubs are yet to register a single win as the season edges closer to the half-way mark.
