KELVIN KAINDU and his super-charged Highlanders are rewriting the record books at Bosso and, on Sunday, they passed a big test with flying colours to remain on the right path in their battle to win the Castle Lager Premiership title.
The Zambian coach is unbeaten in the league since taking over at Bosso at the beginning of the year, and if there were any doubts that they are the real deal, they were quashed on Sunday.
To get such a priceless victory without conceding a goal, against a team that hadn’t lost in half-a-dozen matches, was as good as it gets for Bosso.
The 1-0 win over CAPS United, courtesy of forward Masimba Mambare’s golden goal, fired Highlanders five points clear of the chasing pack.
Kaindu said the Bulawayo giants could have won by a bigger margin.
“I cannot take away anything from CAPS United,” said Kaindu.
“Being one of the teams enjoying good form they played well, but I felt we could have won by a bigger margin.
“We had two goals disallowed for reasons I am not quite sure of.
“Maybe the referees had a better explanation.
“But I am happy we collected maximum points and we are in a good position on the log standings.”
Kaindu said although Bosso were sitting pretty, the target remained to build a competitive team for next season.
“What we want is to build a strong team for next season,” said the Zambian.
