HIGHLANDERS coach Kelvin Kaindu says his team needs to recruit two strikers when the transfer window opens on July 1.

Kaindu’s comments followed their frustrating 1-1 draw against Premier Soccer League newcomers, Bikita Minerals, at Barbourfields on Sunday.

Bosso took an early lead but then allowed the plucky visitors to fight their way back into the game.

“We still have one or two slots that are remaining. We will need to beef up, especially upfront. I think you have seen that we have even used MaNinja (Brighton Ncube) when he is injured but it has been difficult. 

“We have been working with permutations. 

“Now we are hoping that when the window opens we may have one or two strikers,” said Kaindu.

The Zambian gaffer leads a Bosso side that is perched in fifth place, with 23 points, in a campaign where they have scored 19 goals and conceded 13. 

Bosso’s bulk of goals have come from Lynoth Chikuhwa and Ncube who have both contributed 12 goals.

Chikuhwa has scored seven goals while Ncube, a former Chicken Inn forward, has five goals to his name.

On Sunday, the club’s newboy, Marvin Sibanda, got his first goal of the season six minutes into their match against Bikita Minerals.

The young forward was unfortunate not to grab a brace as his other well-taken effort crashed against the crossbar with Bosso fans already on their feet.

Sibanda was previously at the now defunct Bantu Rovers, which featured in the ZIFA Bulawayo Province junior and ZIFA Southern Region Division One leagues, before the player moved to the United States on a football scholarship in 2016.

Sibanda penned a three-year contract with Highlanders early this year.

His last club was Little Rock Rangers, which is based in Arkansas, in the United States.
