Highlanders coach Mandla Mpofu thinks winning in the league is more important than beating bitter rivals Dynamos in Sunday’s game.

The two teams clash at Rufaro Stadium in the first round of the Chibuku Super Cup.

But with Bosso fighting to survive relegation, Mpofu believes putting their focus on the league is better than winning the cup.

Speaking to the press ahead of the Dynamos clash, the coach said: “We are playing Dynamos, and we want to win against our rivals and progress to the next round.

“But though we want to win the cup, the most important thing for us right now is getting points in the league as much as possible.”

Highlanders are sitting in the 11th position with a paltry 28 points in 28 games.
