Bosso Takes On Monoz At Colliery

Highlanders takes on Monomotapa at the Colliery where the two clubs clash in the Mbada Diamonds Cup quarter-final on Sunday.

It will be the third time the two clubs meet this year with Bosso sending Monomotapa packing with a 3-0 win at Barbourfields Stadium in the reverse league fixture in May.

Milton Ncube, Peter "Rio" Moyo and Graham Ncube were on target for the Kelvin Kaindu-coached Highlanders in May when Monomotapa were under the guidance of Taurai Mangwiro, who is now at Caps United.

Biggie Zuze was in charge when Monomotapa got the better of Bosso in Harare in the league about two weeks ago.

Bosso started training on Wednesday after boycotting training last week until a life member made available money to cover winning bonuses for their 1-0 win against Shabanie Mine at Barbourfields Stadium last month.

Kaindu yesterday said he was happy with the way the boys were responding to training after the industrial action and he was hopeful that come Sunday, they would cruise past Monomotapa into the semi-finals of the competition.

He said everyone was at training in the morning at Fairbridge save for skipper Innocent Mapuranga, who was due to join the rest of the players at White City Stadium for the afternoon session.

Mapuranga lost his father on Monday afternoon and had travelled home to Mvurwi for the funeral.

Highlanders beat Blue Rangers 2-1 at Barbourfields Stadium in the first round of the tournament to sail though to the quarter-final stage, while Monomotapa beat Hardbody 4-2 at Dulibadzimu in Beitbridge.
