IT was Dynamos, then came Bulawayo Chiefs and this afternoon Highlanders round off their third consecutive match at the city’s ceremonial home of football — Barbourfields Stadium — against Simba Bhora.

Bosso have picked up four points in the first two games in front of impressive crowds at BF with the first being a 2-1 win over arch rivals Dynamos followed by a one all draw against Bulawayo City. Next up at BF again is another potential crowd pulling match against Simba Bhora considering that today (Friday) is a public holiday and Bosso have opted to keep the gate fees at normal rates of US$3 for the rest of the ground, US$5 for supporters sitting at the wings while those at the VIP section will part with US$10.

It’s been five-and-a -half months since Simba Bhora embarrassed Bosso with a three-nil thumping in Mhongoro Ngezi on an afternoon former Highlanders coach Baltemar Brito came face-to-face with an angry travelling band of supporters who couldn’t stomach being humiliated in such a manner. The defeat was the worst Bosso received at the hands of any opponent last season.

Things are, however, different now. A new coach Kelvin Kaindu is in charge and he is happy with the progress of the team thus far.

“We are heading somewhere in terms of what we are looking for, having come from the international break. I’m happy with the direction we are taking,” said Kaindu.

He is, however, not lost to the fact that his opponents have assembled an expensive side that will go for broke against any side this season.

“Simba Bhora have assembled a very strong team, they went on the market and they got what they were looking for and it’s not easy to face teams like these. We are going in this game knowing that we are facing a very strong team but we will take the advantage that we are playing at home,” he added.
