HIGHLANDERS coach, Baltermar Brito, believes the physicality of the Black Rhinos players will complicate life for his troops on Sunday.
Bosso will host Chauya Chipembere at Barbourfields.
Brito is set to make his debut, as the Bosso head coach, after watching from the stands as his new employers edged Harare City1-0, just before the break.
Joel Luphahla took charge of that match and he is now Brito’s second assistant.
“We were in the stadium watching Bulawayo City against Rhinos, before the mid-season break,” said the Portuguese coach.
“I know it’s going to be a tough game for us, playing a side with a good physical and tactical approach.
“They put pressure on every moment of the game, they fight a lot and also they have good players.
“It’s a clever team that manages the time well when they are winning.”
Brito expressed his satisfaction with the squad at his disposal.
“I’m very happy with the squad we have at the moment but we know training sessions and games are two different situations,” he said.
“A player at training is different from the player in the game, because during the game, one has to cope with emotional things and pressure.
“I hope to have a team with a good personality, who are not afraid of taking decisions and with the capacity to be dominant.”
“We are looking forward to winning the game and if the players can produce the performance, which they have been showing at the training, then we are good for the rest of the season.
“We need to play games to assess the players, at the moment, they are catching the ideas well.
“We now need to play to see how they will respond against opponents.”
Highlanders were at the receiving end in the reverse fixture after a 0-2 loss at the hands of the two-time champions.
Goals from Tawanda Macheke and Edgar Mhungu, were enough to down Bosso.
Interestingly, the duo have since departed from the army side.
Mhungu returned to Herentals while Macheke joined South Africa’s Maritzburg United.
Bosso went on to complete the first round of the season without winning on the road.
