Highlanders forward Gabriel Nyoni was left disappointed after the Premier Soccer League postponed the matches scheduled for this weekend due to the political tension in the country following violence that rocked Harare on Wednesday.

The biggest match on the local calendar, the epic duel between Highlanders and Dynamos at Barbourfields was the major highlight of the matchday 21 but was pushed until the situation stabilizes.

Writing on his Twitter account, Nyoni expressed his disappointment.

“This is depressing. The amount of effort and preparation we had put mentally and physically was above average. The environment around us was also getting us motivated to put smiles on the community’s faces. Football reduces pain and stress,” said Nyoni.

Former Caps United and Warriors left back Cephas Chimedza was quick to remind Nyoni on the dangers of playing matches under such conditions.

“Yes, football is a unifier but we don’t want a situation where people will use football to air their grievances. Keep on working and training hard,” said Chimedza.

Highlanders won the reverse fixture 1-0, through an Ozias Zibande goal.
