Highlanders 2-0 Monomotapa

HIGHLANDERS got their championship campaign back on track with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Monomotapa at Barbourfields on Wednesday.

After losing their last league match 1-0 to Black Mambas amid problems on the technical bench over the presence of welfare manager Willard Khumalo, Highlanders needed an immediate response to their “crisis”.

And left back Bruce Kangwa provided the perfect answer as he settled the nerves of the Bosso faithful with a 38 minute drive from outside the box before new-boy Gabriel Nyoni
settled matters in the 75th minute.

The win saw Highlanders remain in third place with 37 points, one behind joint leaders Dynamos and Harare City.

Nyoni strike was his first goal since moving from Southern Region Division One side Bulawayo Chiefs in July and his celebration, showing the crowd his black and white underpants, earned his a yellow card.

For Monomotapa, Wednesday’s defeat was their fifth loss in a row in all competitions leaving them struggling in 12th place with 22 points from 20 games.

The Harare side are battling a debilitating financial crunch which only got worse after owner Solomon Mugavazi was banned for five years for his alleged involvement in the Asiagate match fixing scandal.

Bosso coach Kelvin Kaindu was happy with the response after the Mambas loss.

“I am happy that we won the match but we are still not converting many of the chances we create. We need to continue working on that. We have 10 more games to play and it’s a long way to go,” he said after the match.

Monoz were at the same venue last Saturday where they lost 3-1 to FC Platinum to bow out of the BancABC Sup8r competition at the semi-final stage.

Elsewhere, the platinum miners made their entry back into the top four when they beat Hwange 1-0 at the Colliery courtesy of a late second half strike from Thabani Kamusoko to take their tally to 33 points after 20 matches.

The win by the Zvishavane side follows a 3-1 victory in the BancABC Sup8r semi-finals against Monomotapa at the weekend that put into the September 21 final against Shabanie Mine, who booted Dynamos out in a penalty shootout.

Shabanie, however failed to maintain the momentum after the win over Dynamos when they went down 2-0 to Black Rhinos at Rimuka Stadium in Kadoma. Brian Muzondiwa and Lot Chiunga did the damage for the soldiers in the first half.

2010 champions Motor Action were left closer to relegation after they went down 2-0 at home to Triangle. From 20 matches, the Mighty Bulls have 14 points and need to win their last 10 games to avoid going down to Division One.

Misheck Mburayi, a former Bulls player struck before causing a penalty scored by Tawanda Muyendi in the 90th minute to seal maximum points for Gishon Ntini’s Triangle.

On Thursday, Caps United host 15th place Tripple B at the National Sports Stadium while How Mine welcome Black Mambas to Luveve Stadium in Bulawayo.
