Bosso poor form continues Take winless streak to six games
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.
