Bosso in How Mine test

BULAWAYO - Highlanders face a potential banana skin that might derail their title aspirations when they face How Mine in a potential explosive derby at Barbourfields Stadium this afternoon.

Going into today’s match, Highlanders are in second place with 24 points, two behind leaders CAPS United, who beat Chicken Inn 2-1 yesterday at Luveve Stadium.

For the past two seasons, Bosso have always found themselves in a similar good position in the first two thirds of the season only to falter in the dying stages.

How Mine are currently sitting on sixth position and are two points behind Bosso.

Higlanders coach Kelvin Kaiundu said they are aiming to maintain their winning formula

“We want to maintain consistency. We are on the top of the table and that is where we intend to stay and the only way to do that is to maintain our winning ways,”  Kaindu said earlier this week.

“How Mine are playing well, they are playing good football but that doesn’t mean we are going to put ourselves under unnecessary pressure we are going to play our normal game.”

The former Bosso player believes that this will be one of the best seasons in Zimbabwe football.

“Our general aim this season is to improve from our last year performance. We also want to build team cohesion so that players will understand one another,” he said.

“It might be too early for the title race but the contest is interesting at this stage no one can predict the champions as for us we need to remain focused.”

Kaindu said that they are not shaken by the departure of many senior players.

“I am not worried about our players movement to South Africa, in fact I am happy, it has been my vision and team s vision to develop players,” added Kaindu.

The Bulawayo giants are set to lose Kuda Mahachi, Milton Ncube and Peter Moyo to South African Clubs during the current transfer window.
