HIGHLANDERS registered back-to-back Castle Lager Premiership wins with a commanding display in their 2-0 win over TelOne at Bata in Gweru yesterday. 

After posting a 1-0 win over Simba Bhora FC last Thursday, Bosso followed it up with another good performance against the home team TelOne FC. 

Lynoth Chikuhwa and Brighton Ncube scored in each half as Highlanders stayed tied points with log leaders FC Platinum, who beat Herentals 1-0 in Harare. 

What the Highlanders family will be happy about is that the two goals came from their strikers. It has been a while since Bosso scored more than a goal in an instance where their strikers came to the party. 

Last year they struggled for goals and scored a paltry 24, the lowest since the birth of the Premier Soccer League in 1993. 

Yesterday’s match started at a fast pace with both teams seemingly seeking early goals. 

Chikuhwa scored at the stroke of half time giving Highlanders the deserved lead.

When the second half started, Highlanders continued to show intent of scoring more goals and sealing the match. 

In the 55th minute, Highlanders’ Godfrey Makaruse hit the upright with TelOne FC goalkeeper Matripples Muleya beaten. 

Ncube, who arrived from Chicken Inn at the beginning of the year, scored his first Premiership goal for High-landers in the 63rd minute to secure maximum points.
