ON Song Highlanders will seek to consolidate their solid start to the 2018 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season when they play host to Triangle on Good Friday at Barbourfields Stadium.

The new-look Bosso line-up has registered back to back wins. The match against winless Triangle presents new coach Madinda Ndlovu with another chance to charm their followers ahead of Easter Mondaya��s away showdown against their old time nemesis Dynamos. Bosso will be out for revenge after last seasona��sA� first round match was awarded to DeMbare on a 3 -0 scoreline with the game having been abandoned with scores level at 1-1 following crowd trouble at Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo.

The second leg tie saw Bosso end the Glamour Boysa�� six-match winning run when they played out to a 1-all draw at Rufaro Stadium.

An early goal from Christian Epoupa and Bossoa��s second half goal from Benson Phiri were enough to bring the result in a tight contest which saw both teams dominating either halves.

Before their Easter Monday tie against Bosso, DeMbare, who are smarting from a shock three-all draw against Shabanie Mine, will on Thursday take on bogey side Ngezi Platinum Stars at Baobab Stadium. On the same day, Chicken Inn will square it off against Mutare City at Luveve Stadium while Bulawayo City take on Bulawayo Chiefs at Barbourfields Stadium in a potentially explosive derby tie.
