Highlanders bowed out of the Mbada Cup after a 2-3 defeat to Monomotapa at the Wankie Colliery Stadium this afternoon. Bosso squandered a 2-0 lead after a promising start to the rich Cup tourney.
Amahlolanyama put up a brave face as they looked like a team that put their week's troubles behind them. The championship contenders have been on strike over unpaid bonuses and lost precious training time which eventually came to haunt when it mattered most.
Fatigue seemed to have crept in as they surrendered what was a comfortable lead. The Highlanders supporters across the globe were already in a drive to commit whatever resources was at their disposal to help alleviate the problem, a move they will be pursuing with a vengeance from now on.
The main focus will be on the league next week as the team fights for the Castle Lager Premier League against Dynamos in Harare. Rallying behind the boys will be ever so vital.
