Gamecocks march on to pile misery on Bosso

BULAWAYO - Highlanders’ home woes continued after they suffered another defeat at the hands of high riding Chicken Inn in a Castle Lager Premiership match here yesterday.

The result left fans calling for the dismissal of coach Bongani Mafu, who pleaded for their support to help the side weather the storm.

“We need the support rather than antagonism. This really plays a negative part on the boys. I know they want a win and the only thing to silence them is to win,” acknowledged Mafu.

“They scored the goals but they never played football. We gifted them the two goals.”

Chicken Inn coach Joey Antipas was a delighted man with the result.

“It was a good result for us especially coming from a two back-to-back draws. We really controlled the game especially in the second half,” he said.

“We still need to continue working harder though.”

Yesterday, the Gamecocks opened the scoring as early as the sixth minute through midfielder Canaan Nkomo.

Bosso equalised in the 35th minute through defender Simon Munawa after a good interchange of passes with substitute Knox Mutizwa.

Red hot Chickenn Inn forward Edmore Chirambadare then broke the hearts of the Bosso supporters in the 65th minute.

Soon after the game placards carrying Highlanders supporters in the popular Soweto stand were singing for their coach’s exit

The Gamecocks now lead the log standings with 23 points while Highlanders remain in sixth place with 14 points.

At this rate Highlanders will soon be fighting against relegation. The Executive blundered in firing Kaindu. Blame goes to the CEO who jumped the gun and announced KK's dismissal prematurely. Blame goes to the entire Executive and the Board for hiring the blundering Mhapfu when so many qualified and experienced coaches wanted to join Highlanders but were ignored for the out of sorts Mhapfu. Supporters want results not excuses. Its high time you quit.
