Sibanda gives Bosso reason to believe

HARARE - Highlanders fought intriguing battles with arch rivals Dynamos for the Premiership title in the last three years only to lose on goal difference on all occasions.

The Bulawayo giants, however, seem to have made their intentions clear for this year’s title fight as they close the first half of the campaign on pole position.

Bosso has amassed 30 points, three better than second placed trio of ZPC Kariba, Dynamos and CAPS United, who are all tied on 27 points with only the goal difference separating them.

One player who has been Highlanders’ driving force so far this season is forward Charles Sibanda.

The former Motor Action talisman, who signed for Bosso at the beginning of the year from FC Platinum, is currently enjoying the kind of form which cannot help but leave a player feeling content with his performances.

Sibanda was the star of the show for Highlanders after he scored a hat-trick in Bosso’s 4-2 win against Bantu Rovers at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday.

The hat-trick saw the former Soccer Star of the Year take his goal tally to 10 making him the league’s top goal scorer to date after 15 matches.

And, as the title race starts to take shape, Sibanda is now Bosso’s leading light upfront as they hope to win their first title since 2006.

With the rate that he is scoring, Sibanda could easily break the 20 goals per season barrier that has proven to be uneatable tally for domestic players in recent years.

The former FC Platinum player has started in almost every competitive game for Bosso this term and his goals represents a good run for a player who looks to be improving with each game considering that he is not an out and out striker.

After the win over Bantu Rovers, Kaindu praised his team’s scoring run and believes it will be the difference if they are too win the league this season.

“It was a tough game but we won in the end. I am happy we scored four goals it was important because last year we failed to take the championship due to goal difference and this year we are rectifying that,” said the Zambian.

With star players Milton Ncube, Peter “Rio” Moyo and Kuda Mahachi all head to South Africa, Bosso will need Sibanda to continue with the same scoring form to wrestle the title away from DeMbare.
