Motor Action date Highlanders

HARARE Premiership log leaders Motor Action will be seeking to extend their stay at the top by collecting maximum points against Highlanders in a potentially explosive tie at Barbourfields this afternoon.

The Mighty Bulls go into the match with 26 points one ahead of second placed Dynamos and bagging all three points will help strengthen their bid to lift the domestic crown for the first time in their history.

Motor Action coach Joey Antipas said this week they were aiming to grab all the three points against Highlanders. Antipas, who is also the national team assistant coach, however, admitted it would not be easy.

“Our aim is to collect all points against Highlanders but that will not be easy. Highlanders are like a wounded lion because they have not been playing well especially away and would want to take advantage of home ground. We really have to measure up to the challenge,” said Antipas.

Bosso are suffering from travel sickness these days as they have not been winning matches away from their fortress Barbourfields.

Highlanders, under the guidance of Egyptian coach Mohammed Fathy, have not registered a single league victory away from Barbourfields to date.

In their last visit to Harare Bosso were held to 0-0 draw against Eagles at Gwanzura in a league match.

But Fathy will hope to ride on home advantage to collect maximum points against the log leaders, although the absence of striker Eric Mudzingwa, who was redcarded during the goalless draw against Eagles, could dent Bossos chances of victory.
