HIGHLANDERS caretaker coach Mark Mathe was a relieved man when he led the Bulawayo giants to a 4-1 win over Shabanie Mine at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday.

Mathe was standing in for his boss Kelvin Kaindu who is in England completing his Uefa B coaching course.

Sunday’ win buried a poor run that had haunted them from preseason and saw them draw 0-0 with Chapungu the previous weekend.

As expected, pressure was beginning to mount on the Bulawayo giants.

Goalkeeper Munyaradzi Diya led the routing with two first half penalties before Knox Mutizwa and Milton Ncube weighed in with a goal each.

Lewis Matawu scored Shabanie’s consolation which was his second goal in as many matches.

“We finally won and we are very happy. The boys knew this was a must win and they delivered although we were not impressive in the second half.

“We know the fans were not happy with the past results and we managed to make them smile again. We will work hard to ensure positive results always come,” Mathe said.

With three points in the bag, plus one from the Chapungu draw, Highlanders bid for a first league title since 2006 could be on course.
