Highlanders finally remembered how to win when they edged visiting Harare City 1-0 in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League Match Day 17 tie played at Barbourfields Stadium this Sunday.
Skipper Ariel Sibanda stepped forward to beat his opposite number from the spot.
The win is a welcome relief for the lukewarm Bulawayo giants who have been posting a chain of less inspiring draws in the past few matches.
Highlanders interim coach Joel Lupahla was in charge of the team and it was his second game while manning the Bosso dugout after his first assignment ended in a goalless draw away to Kariba this past weekend.
The victory is a welcome boost for new coach Baltemar Jose De Oliveira Brito who has been hired on a substantive basis to rescue the former champions’ faltering season.
