By James Lwanga in Zanzibar Tusker 2 Forodha 1 Today: Elman v Simba SC Villa coach Moses Basena believes his side will have the first laugh come Thursday when they take on Rwanda’s APR in the CECAFA club championship here. Villa started off the tournament with a 1-all draw against Mlandege Saturday but Basena thinks Villa is testing success. He attributed Saturday’s draw to frequent loss of concentration especially by his midfield and front runners. On the pitch yesterday, champions Tusker of Kenya beat local favourites Forodha in the second match of the tournament. Forodha playing without their coach on the bench succumbed to defeat as the champions took control of the game. Forodha’s coach Bruhan Msomba, was suspended by CECAFA officials for allegedly calling them hopeless in a drunken stupor. Oscar Kadenge took Tusker into the lead on 57th minutes after his short from outside the box took a wicked deflection off a defender to send Forodha’s ‘keeper Swalman Ali in opposite direction. Frankline Obera killed off the hopes with a thundering shot, ten minutes to the end of the match. ends
