Highlanders will aim to register their first win following a series of three consecutive losses when they face Chapungu in a Castle Lager Premiership match at the Hartsfield Rugby ground on Sunday.

Under fire Bosso coach Erol Akbay knows only a victory will be the best result against the Gweru based side.

“It’s now important for us to beat every opponent, we are going for victory. If you are a big club as Highlanders if you don’t win there is lots of pressure, we lost a lot of key players. I know what the problem is, my head is clear, I’ll try my best that we win,’’ Akbay told the Sunday News.

Highlanders will have to make do without defender Peter Muduhwa who is suspended for accumulating 3 yellow cards while captain Erick Mudzingwa, Nhlanhla Ndlovu and Godfrey Makaruse are all ruled out due to injuries.
