Mushowani 0 – 0 Highlanders
HIGHLANDERS fans barricaded themselves on the team bus and demanded the dismissal of coach Madinda Ndlovu at the end of the game after a sketch dribbled with the debutants League Mushowani at the National Sports Stadium yesterday.
It could be Bosso's worst start of the league season long after they have accumulated only three points in five matches.
Highlanders are still to win the game this year after managing three draws and two losses
The Bolavian giants have also scored only two goals so far and the pressure is rising on Ndlovu, whose rebuilding project received applause last season.
But Ndlovu looked surprised by the reaction of the fans, who looted and threw him insults after the last whistle.
He blamed the team's low performance for a long strike before the season that influenced the preparations.
"What went wrong in the Wilders play differently than last season is because of one aspect we have not been able to do, we have not done right in the preparations and here are football matches, you are doing right in your preparations to start very well," Ndlovu said in his post-match interview.
"We're trying to get the players not to blame themselves for what happened because maybe it was because of them and we can not crucify them for that.
Take the blame because I am the coach, but I was there to train the team.
"And those are the actors I was supposed to be training when they were not there, I'm not nervous at all because we know when these kids come
At the level we want them to give us the same kind of football they produced last season. "
Mushowani, who set a great spot against the champions of FC Platinum about a week ago, should curse their luck after Kumbirai Kapikinyu missed a face-to-face babysitter with Ariel Sibanda early in the game.
The fans of Boso Ray Leinga dragged the top drawer away from Hamilton Makinganawa, five minutes into the break, after a right-side attack from the right.
Prince Bear was caught napping after receiving a brilliant square ball in the Malonga box for a stroke of half and he could not connect.
Both teams failed to create any significant chances in the second half.
"We always play outside the home, each team has to play against its supporters, I think playing outside the house does not do us any good."
Coach Mushowani Newman Maship said.
Meanwhile, in another Lager Castle Premier League football game ZPC Kriva continued its impressive start to the season after scoring a 2-1 victory over Yadah
FC, which picked them up in the second on the diaries table.
Elsewhere, the Black Rhine beat the city Harare 2-1 at the Rufaro Stadium.
