Dynamos, meanwhile, continued to blow hot and cold after drawing with Buymore 0-0 at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday. It was an abject performance by Dembare who have been fancing a late assault on the title but have run out of games.
Shooting Stars totally dominated the match but could not turn their dominance into goals.
Bosso coach, Methembe Ndlovu, tried to pepper over his team’s difficult finish to the season, but there was no mistaking the anxiety of their supporters who looked like they could explode over anything — as they did when they pelted the referee with beer cans after he showed Zenzo Moyo a yellow card.
“A draw away from home is a good result,” was Ndlovu’s spin after an insipid performance.
Such is the crisis at Highlanders that they are willing to risk injured players — as they did with Honour Gombami on Saturday.
“Gombami played well despite the injury,” said Ndlovu. “I intended to play him just for the opening 45 minutes, but the pressures of the game forced my hand and he had to stick it out for the 90 minutes.”
