Highlanders manager Madinda Ndlovu says the Battle of the Cities against CAPS United on Sunday lived to its billing despite lacking goals.
The encounter ended in a goalless stalemate with both teams team failing to convert the chances that fell on their way.
Bosso’s Newman Sianchali got the best opportunities in the game, coming one-on-one with the keeper on two occasions but failed to hit the target. On the other hand, Nigerian striker Abasarim Chidiebere also got his fair share of opportunities but could not give CAPS United the advantage. At one point, he found the back of the net, but the referee blew for an offside.
Speaking after the match, Madinda said: “Both teams played brilliant football, with Caps United taking the first half but as the game progressed, my boys picked up momentum.
“We managed to create some good chances, but not so good in terms of joy because we missed a couple of opportunities that I feel we should have scored.
“But that is the name of the game, and I don’t blame the boys.”
Highlanders remained in the 6th position with 43 points while CAPS are fifth, with a point better than Bosso.
