Bosso off the mark

BULAWAYO - Highlanders picked up their first win of the 2015 Castle premiership season after beating newboys Tsholotsho FC here yesterday.

The win brought a huge relief to new Bosso coach Bongani Mafu, who saw his reign get off to a bad start with a 2-0 to ZPC Kariba last weekend.

Teenage Hadebe scored the all important goal for the Bulawayo giants in the 34th minute when he caught out Tsholotsho goalkeeper Mariyoni Chang with a well executed lob from 25 metres out. 

Mafu was pleased after the match as his team had got their season rolling once again following the disappointment from the ZPC defeat.

“It was a hard game to win. Our opponents had good midfield interplay. We really need to work more on our finishing,” he said.

“We got chances to score more than four goals. We are creating clear-cut chances but not converting them.”

After the match the Tsholotsho coach Lizwe Sweswe praised his boys for the fight they gave theur more illustrious opponents.

The PSL newcomers had come into this match high on confidence after defeating Harare City in their opening match of the season.

“The boys played well, we were just unlucky. We played a bit deep; the boys are still coming up and have little experience. I believe things are going to be well. We need to work on our play offensively,” Sweswe said.

Yesterday, Bosso started the match with a lot of urgency and could have opened the scoring in the 23rd minute but forward Obadiah Tarumbwa produced a contender for miss of the season.

Teenage striker Thomas Chideu did all the hard work before teeing up Tarumbwa inside the box.

With Chang out of the picture, the former Bantu Rovers forward missed his chance with the net to beat.

There was nothing Chang could however, do to stop Hadebe’s strike which gave Bosso the maximum points.
