Nsimbe was confirmed on Monday by club CEO Hamza Jjunju as he joins Shafik Bisaso and the other technical wing at the Red Eagles.

His arrival at a club that has only managed 4 wins in 20 outings is envisaged as a timely boost in a bid to fight the looming relegation monster.

The six time league winners lie rock bottom with just 16 points from 20 matches played.

The game against Soana comes days after a heart breaking 4-3 loss away to Police at Mandela National stadium.

Soana, fresh from a hard fought 1-0 victory at home against URA last Saturday visit Wankulukuku, a once intimidating fortress.
