Highlanders coach Madinda Ndlovu says they want to make sure they remain the big boys in Bulawayo by beating city rivals Chicken Inn this weekend.
Bosso are yet to win this term and are sitting in the 16th position with just four points out of a possible eighteen.
They face a 4th placed side, the Gamecocks, at Barbourfields Stadium on Saturday, and Madinda knows the challenge ahead of them.
“Local derbies are always tricky, so it is the fight of the city, and we will have to make sure that we remain the big boys in this city,” said Ndlovu on Thursday.
“I predict an explosive kind of a game. Chicken Inn have new players acquired from other clubs, very seasoned players and pacey players for that matter. We also worked on that aspect and worked on our attacking flair which will involve probably a lot of speed.”
Highlanders have a poor record against their Saturday opponents, with only two victories in the sixteen meetings since 2011 while Chicken Inn have seven.
