With the win, ZPC Kariba com­pleted a dou­ble over High­landers this sea­son af­ter a 2-1 tri­umph at Bar­bour­fields Sta­dium in May.

Bosso went into this match hop­ing to bounce back from a shock mid­week de­feat to Mutare City but the Bu­l­awayo gi­ants were down as early as the 17th minute af­ter vet­eran striker Tawanda Nya­mandwe sliced home a free kick by Mun­yaradzi Kun­yarimwe. Sub­sti­tute Boni­face Zu­beri made it 2-0 for the hosts in the 55th minute and the home side hung on un­til the fi­nal whis­tle. It was Bosso’s sec­ond de­feat on the trot and Ndlovu ad­mit­ted that he lost to a bet­ter side.

“We lost to a bet­ter team,

ZPC Kariba were hun­grier and they de­served to win,”

Ndlovu said.

“We have to re­group, we have lost six points in a row and it’s not good.

Both teams played mid­week, we played un­der the same con­di­tions so there are no ex­cuses.”

ZPC Kariba moved into eighth po­si­tion while High­landers re­mained sixth with 39 points. Kauya Katu­ru­turu coach God­frey Tamirepi show­ered praises on his charges who swiftly bounced back from a 1-0 mid­week loss at Ngezi Plat­inum Stars.

“It was good to bounce back. The early goal un­set­tled the visi­tors, we man­aged to main­tain the mo­men­tum un­til the sucker punch which was enough to get us the three points. We have to win against Mutare City in our next match,” added Tamirepi.
