Madinda Ndlovu has declared that his side is not worried or afraid of facing log leaders Ngezi Platinum Stars in an epic encounter penciled for the Baobab stadium on Saturday.
The two sides who both have been free scoring and are yet to taste defeat will battle out in a week 8 of the Castle Larger Premier Soccer League match which promises fireworks and has already set tongues rolling amongst soccer followers all over the country.
Speaking to the media during the club’s weekly press conference Ndlovu was oozing with confidence as he boldly declared that he sees his team capable of continuing with their good run and are not intimidated by the fact that their opponents on Saturday have only lost four times at their home ground since their promotion to the elite league and also that they have been free scoring this season.
“We are also a free scoring team we can’t completely deny them from scoring because football is a game of scoring, we just have to minimize the goals we are going to concede, I am very confident of my defense that they will fare well “ said Ndlovu.
Ndlovu added that he won’t read much into history and he is confident that his boys will come good.
“We have been winning on the road and there is nothing that takes me off my game plan and tactics I have my objectives that I want to achieve plus as I have said before there is no team that we give special treatment”, said Madinda.
Highlanders will be without under 20 defender Bukhosi Ndlovu, central defender Tendai Ndlovu, striker Ozias Sibanda and Captain Honest Moyo with the other trio of Nigel Makumbe, Brian Banda and Thabo Lunga set to pass late fitness tests after receiving knocks in the game against Shabanie Mine.
Mhondoro Ngezi will be at stand still on Saturday as the two sides who have so far set the pace in the exciting 2018 Zimbabwe premier soccer league clash at the Baobab stadium.
Bosso has so far managed to score in each and every away game they have played this season and it will come as a big test for them whether they will be able to break the Ngezi defence which has so far conceded 2 goals in their opening 7 games.
Bosso beat the miners home and away in the 2016 season but last year they won at home and went on to lose the second leg at Baobab stadium.
Meanwhile the Bosso Chief Executive Officer Nhlanhla Dube has urged the Highlanders fans to travel in their numbers to cheer their team. “ We urge our fans to travel in numbers but also to be cautious on the roads and stick to stadium security rules as they go to watch their team as there will be plenty more matches after the Ngezi game”, he said.
Dube said the travelling fans should leave an impression that will help the Bosso brand to grow whether they win or lose.
