BU­L­AWAYO, Fri­day, Au­gust 2, 1991 — Ex-High­landers king­pin Pe­ter Ndlovu scored the win­ning goal in his de­but match for English First Divi­sion soc­cer club Coven­try City on Sun­day.

Ac­cord­ing to High­landers ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee mem­ber Ilam Elkaim, Ndlovu’s cru­cial goal in a pre-sea­son friendly match away to Fourth Divi­sion Alder­shot FC capped a fine per­for­mance which has im­pressed the club’s coach­ing depart­ment. Coven­try won the match 2-1. “I spoke to Coven­try sec­re­tary Gra­ham Hover who said that Pe­ter has im­pressed man­ager Terry Butcher, and they an­tic­i­pate he will be in the start­ing line-up when the new English sea­son starts in about two weeks’ time,” said Elkaim yes­ter­day.

Elkaim said he was told by Hover that Coven­try had fielded its full strength team on Sun­day.

Ndlovu, who moved to Coven­try for an undis­closed sum two weeks ago, left with the team on Mon­day for a three-match tour of Scot­land.

The man­ager­ess of a youth hos­tel where Ndlovu and a num­ber of his Coven­try team-mates are stay­ing, Maria Fletcher, said in a tele­phone in­ter­view yes­ter­day that the Zim­bab­wean was ‘’do­ing fine’’.
