Highlanders coach Mandla Mpofu has rued the chances his charges wasted in 1-0 defeat to Harare City on Sunday.

Bosso dominated proceedings throughout the game, but a 21st-minute goal from Jerry Chipangura spelt a bad day for the Bulawayo giants.

Prince Dube, MacClive Phiri, Peter Muduhwa and Brian Banda all created good chances but failed to hit the target.

“In football, if you don’t take your chances you are bound to be punished and this exactly what happened today,” Mpofu said in his post-match presser.

“We created more than a dozen chances but didn’t convert even one. It’s something that, as a coach, gets you worried.

“In terms of performance we did well but it was not enough to win the match.”

Mpofu also explained the reason behind his team’s failure to score goals.

He said: “We don’t have that composure because it was easy to score than to miss. We will dig dipper and find the solution.”
