Bulawayo giants, Highlanders and Ngezi Platinum Stars played to a 1-all draw in an exciting encounter played at Baobab stadium in Mhondoro Ngezi Sunday afternoon.
The Bulawayo giants looked a different side from the team that was failing to create chances in the first half of the season as they carved chance after chance only to fail to bury them.
The home side scored first after youngster Lesly Kashitigu found the back of the net, but Highlanders restored parity shortly before half time.
The second half was all Bosso and coach, Baltremar Brito feels the field disrupted his style of play.
“My team is still adapting to my methods, but I think the field wasn’t good to play football. It was too muddy and it is dangerous for football, but we did the best we could and I am happy with the result,” he said.
His opposite number, Benjani Mwaruwari who oversaw his tenth game this Sunday feels his boys should have snatched the game early.
“In the first half, we had a lot of chances and we should have killed the game then before we allowed them to dominate in the second half.”
Elsewhere, Triangle held Dynamos to a nil-all draw at the National Sports Stadium, while struggling Cranborne Bullets finally ended Bulawayo Chiefs unbeaten run after edging them 1-nil.
Whawha got the bragging rights in the Correctional Services derby after beating Tenax 2-nil at Ascot Stadium.
