Highlanders rediscovered their winning path after beating Bulawayo Chiefs 3-1 in a rescheduled league match played at Barbourfields Stadium on Wednesday.

Bosso had gone for five games without a win, but they put on a dominant performance to end the run in front of their new Dutch coach Hendrik Pieter de Jongh who watched from the stands.

They took the game to Chiefs in the opening minutes and created a couple of chances. It was until the 26th minute when Prince Dube broke the deadlock before Tinashe Makanda doubled the advantage ten minutes later.

Makanda got his brace in the 56th minute, stretching the lead to 3-0.

Tshilamoya could have made it four just after the hour, but Ray Lunga’s tap-in was ruled for an offside.

Chiefs, however, managed to pull one goal back on the 85th minute through Hugh Chikosa but the effort was a mere consolation as it ended 3-1 to the visitors.

The result puts Highlanders into the 11th position with 28 points, four above the drop zone while Chiefs remain number 17 with 21 points.

At Luveve, Chicken Inn moved to the top of the log after beating Herentals 4-1.

The Gamecocks are now tied with CAPS United on 41 points but have a superior goal difference.

Brett Amidu scored a brace to add to goals from Tichaona Chipunza and Innocent Muchaneka.

The Students got their goal from Juan Mutudza in the stoppage time.

Results:
Bulawayo Chiefs 1-3 Highlanders
Chicken Inn 4-1 Herentals
