GREEN Fuel fans are optimistic of improved performances in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League after holding giants Highlanders to a one-all draw in Chisumbanje at the weekend.

The Chisumbanje-based Boyz dze Nharo secured a one-all draw at home against giants Highlanders this Sunday.

The club recently appointed veteran coach Saul Chaminuka who replaced Rodwell Dhlakama.

Despite the seemingly rush decision to sack Dhlakama with the club then on 16 points, the fans are optimistic of securing more points.

“We are impressed with this form. It’s not easy to beat Bikita Minerals, Manica Diamonds and Highlanders but we have managed two points from the three matches. We are now in the right direction in terms of performance.

“We are happy with this result against Highlanders. It was not an easy match but going forward we expect better results since we now have an experience coach.

“This is our second season in the PSL so we are still learning. We welcome Saul Chaminuka to the team and we hope he will guide us to a top finish. We are also looking forward to beefing up our squad in the summer window.”

Travelling Highlanders fans also gave their verdict of the game.

Green Fuel head coach Saul Chaminuka believes his squad can stand the heat in the Premier Soccer League.

“I am still settling in and getting to know the players at personal level but I am happy with performance. We lost to Manica Diamonds but secured draws against Bikita and Highlanders so we are heading in the right direction. The support that we are getting from our fans is amazing and this will help us push for better results going forwards,” he said.

On the other hand, Bosso were satisfied with the draw after playing the majority of the second half with 10 men after youngster Mvelo Khoza was red carded.

“Green Fuel is not an easy side. They scored first in the first half and in the 66th minute we went on man down and we had to adjust our play.

“I am happy with the point but as Highlanders we want to continue living up to our standards that of winning and this is always the way we approach our games,” said Highlanders Head Coach, Kelvin Kaindu.

Meanwhile, Greenfuel is seating on the 12th spot with 17 points, while the Bulawayo giants are on 4th with 22 points.
