ZPC Kariba . . . . . . . . . . . . . .2 High­landers . . . . . . . . . . . . 0 MADINDA NDLOVU ad­mit­ted he lost to a well drilled side af­ter High­landers fell to ZPC Kariba at Nyamhunga yes­ter­day.

Bosso went into this match hop­ing to bounce back from a shock mid­week de­feat at 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 Mu­na­yaradzi Kun­yarimwe.

Sub­sti­tute Borni­face Zu­beri made it 2-0 for the hosts in the 55th minute and the elec­tri­cians hung on un­til the fi­nal whis­tle.

It was Bosso’s sec­ond de­feat on the trot and Ndlovu ad­mit­ted 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 0-1 mid­week lost at Ngezi Plat­inum Stars. “It was good to bounce back,” Tamirepi said.

“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.
