HIGHLANDERS coach Kelvin Kaindu will get a chance to assess his team ahead of the start of the new season albeit, from the stands when they face Greenfuel in a friendly match at Bata Stadium in Gweru today.

Kaindu is yet to get his work permit and has spent the last month  on the stands watching his assistants take charge at training. He will once again be on the terraces as his assistants Try Ncube and Agent Sawu give instructions from the touchline. The club says it has submitted all the required paperwork to get Kaindu’s permit.

“We expect the permit issue to be sorted out soon. In the meantime other members of the technical team will carry on with the duties and the club has full faith in them,” said Bosso communications officer Nozibelo Maphosa.

This will be Bosso’s first official friendly match of the season. In this window, Bosso have bolstered their squad by signing mid-fielders Marvin Sibanda from Little Rock from the USA and Brian Ndlovu from Adachi, defender Brian Mlotshwa formerly with Hwange and striker Reason Sibanda. Sibanda was at Premiership new boys Arenel last season.

The club has also gone on to extend the contracts of Darlington Mukuli, Gillian Nyathi, Talent Dube, Prince Ndlovu and the Mushore brothers, McKinnon and Mason. Defender Mvelo Khoza and midfielder Akim Nkomo have been promoted from the development side.

Greenfuel, who are under the tutelage of Rodwell Dhlakama have spent the last six days in camp in the Midlands mining centre of Shurugwi. So far, he has lured the likes of Luke Musukiri and Stephen Chatikobo to Chisumbanje. Dhlakama has also added another pair of Chipinge boys, with former Harare City midfielder Learnmore Muyambo and ex-Caps United winger Clive Rupiya coming into the fold.

The friendly match will allow both teams to get a clear picture of where they are in terms of their preparedness.
Since Bosso last won the league title in 2006, only Kaindu has come close to ending the league title jinx.

Kaindu who is making a return to Bosso lost the title to Dynamos on goal difference in two consecutive seasons. In 2012, Bosso finished the season on 69 points the same as DeMbare, but the latter won the title due to a superior goal difference.

In 2013, the two giants finished the season level on 54 points and DeMbare won the title on goal difference again. Last season Bosso finished in fifth place, 11 points adrift of eventual champions Ngezi Platinum Stars. – @innocentskizoe.
