Bosso chase morale-boosting win

Story by Grace Sibanda

BULAWAYO giants Highlanders will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways when they host rejuvenated Hwange in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Babourfields Stadium this Sunday.

The Bulawayo giants are winless in their last six encounters and last tasted victory in April when they beat CAPS United two-nil.

Despite home advantage, the black and white army is cognisant of the challenge posed by Hwange who have a new coach in Rodwell Dhlakama.

Bosso have a full squad at their disposal something head coach Kelvin Kaindu believes will make a difference.

“The whole team is training and this will give us an advantage as we have a variety of options to choose from. We are not going into this match unprepared as Hwange FC is not so predictable as they have won the last two matches, and I’m sure they have prepared well knowing they are playing a big team like Highlanders,” said Kaindu.

Highlanders are hoping for a change of fortunes as they aim for the elusive league title.

“The morale in the team is not so bad. We are doing our best to make our supporters and our coach proud,” said Highlanders player, Brian Mlotshwa.

Weekend PSL action is headlined by the encounter between log leaders FC Platinum and high-flying Simba Bhora at Mandava Stadium this Saturday.

Bikita Minerals welcome Chicken Inn to Sakubva and defending champions Ngezi Platinum Stars face off with Herentals at Rufaro Stadium.

New boys Arenel take on TelOne at Luveve to conclude Saturday’s action.

Second-placed Manica Diamonds have a tricky fixture against Dynamos at Sakubva on Sunday while Harare giants CAPS United face Chegutu Pirates at Rufaro Stadium and Green Fuel welcome Yadah to Chisumbanje.
