Bosso took their winning run to a magnificent seven games and now sit on 53 points, one behind log leaders Caps United who staged a mysterious comeback in the Harare derby; coming from 0-3 down to force a 3-3 draw against former champions Dynamos.
When referee Munyaradzi Majoni blew to end the game, Bosso fans’ celebrations were rather subdued as information filtered through that Caps United had performed some kind of Houdini act in Harare to grab a point.
Highlanders scored through Gabriel Nyoni, Simon Munawa and Nadolo to cut the gap between them and Caps United to just one point and are now hoping they continue their winning spree and that the Green Machine falters in the next game against Harare City.
Nyoni gave Highlanders a 20th minute lead, capitalising on a goalkeeping boob by Bulawayo City’s Ndodana Sibanda, who miscalculated Allen Gahadzikwa’s long pass intended for Nyoni. The ball took an awkward bounce and over Sibanda, leaving Nyoni with the simplest task of heading into an empty net.
The goal took the steam out of City and Highlanders soon doubled their lead through Munawa, who did justice to a fatanstic move in the 37th minute.
