Bosso poor form con­tin­ues Take win­less streak to six games

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

0-1 to Caps United, a shock 1-2 de­feat against Mutare City Rovers, 1-2 to Tri­an­gle United and 0-1 to ZPC Kariba. They drew 1-1 with Chicken Inn in Week 19.

Morale is re­port­edly low in the High­landers camp and their sup­port­ers will be hop­ing Dutch coach Erol Ak­bay, his tech­ni­cal team and play­ers come up with a plan to end their poor run.

High­landers’ sup­port­ers have even for­got­ten how to cel­e­brate as their last vic­tory was on July 17 when they beat Caps United 1-0 at Bar­bour­fields Sta­dium cour­tesy of a Bruce Kangwa strike.

Kangwa im­me­di­ately left Bosso after that vic­tory to join Tan­za­nia gi­ants Azam. His de­par­ture left a big void and Ak­bay seems to be strug­gling to come up with a sys­tem that can ac­com­mo­date his play­ers.

Bosso’s next match is against fired-up How Mine, a side that has col­lected the most points in the sec­ond half, 11 from a pos­si­ble 15.

At the week­end, How Mine were held to a 1-1 draw by Cha­pungu and are en­joy­ing a good run that might in­spire them to vic­tory against High­landers.

While Bosso are strug­gling, lead­ers FC Plat­inum stretched their lead to five points after beat­ing Tri­an­gle United 2-1 at Gibbo Sta­dium. Ex-High­landers’ mid­fielder Nqo­bizitha Ma­suku and Tari­sai Rukanda were on tar­get for the plat­inum min­ers, while Tichaona Ma­pung­wana scored for Tri­an­gle United.

Caps United’s quest to main­tain pres­sure on FC Plat­inum took a knock when they were ham­mered 1-3 by Bu­l­awayo City on Sun­day.

City were all over the am­bi­tious Harare side, who are sec­ond on the ta­ble with 37 points.

In the rel­e­ga­tion bat­tle, an­chors Bor­der Strik­ers con­tin­ued with their sur­vival jour­ney, beat­ing Ngezi Plat­inum 2-0 at Dulivhadz­imu, while sec­ond from bot­tom Tsholot­sho lost 0-1 to cham­pi­ons Chicken Inn.

Mutare City Rovers are a place above the drop zone and beat Hwange 2-1 at Sakubva.
