RAY Lunga yesterday scored Highlanders’ first goal at home to earn them their first win of the season in nine matches. They beat TelOne 1-0.
TelOne finished the game with 10 men after Frankson Bushiri was red carded with 16 minutes to the final whistle.
Lunga said he was elated to help his team record their first win of the season after a poor start.
“It feels good, winning our much awaited first set of three points. The win was long overdue.
“We have been working very hard but things were not going our direction. The whole team did well, we had to fight harder and I am glad our efforts paid off.
“This is just the beginning of greater things ahead,” said Lunga.
Lunga said the win gives them confidence ahead of next fixture and they will fight to bring back smiles on the faces of their fans and become a competitive side.
“We needed to score goals. We knew that goals will get us the much needed three points.
“We would like to thank all those who stood with us during the trying times, we promise them better.
“This won’t be our last win nor my last goal as well. The best is yet to come,” he added.
Highlanders had gone for eight games without a win which put coach Madinda Ndlovu under pressure.
