Despite their recent poor performance and losing their lead in the championship race, Highlanders remain determined to compete for the premier league title. Highlanders have faced a challenging three weeks, losing to FC Platinum and Chicken Inn by 2-0 scores and surrendering their top position in the league table to Ngezi Platinum Stars.

In addition, their match against Dynamos was abandoned due to crowd trouble. Highlanders' captain, Ariel Sibanda, acknowledged that their recent form has been subpar but remains hopeful that they can still contend for the league title. He emphasized that they have been in a similar situation before and need to pick themselves up and fight until the end.

Highlanders currently sit in second place on the league table with 41 points, one point behind Ngezi Platinum Stars, with eleven games remaining in the season. Their position in the table could drop further if their abandoned match against Dynamos is awarded to the latter team.

Sibanda couldn't explain the sudden decline in their performance, especially at a critical stage of the season, but called on his teammates to improve in all aspects of the game. Assistant coach Antonio Torres attributed their recent struggles to fatigue but expressed determination to pursue their goal of winning the title.

Highlanders have been struggling defensively, conceding six goals in recent matches. Sibanda recognized that their low energy levels against Dynamos contributed to the defeat and emphasized the need to start each game with high intensity.

Their focus is now on their upcoming match against Yadah, with the team eager to regain their form and bring back victories to Bulawayo. However, Yadah has requested that the fixture be moved to a neutral venue outside Bulawayo or be played at an empty Barbourfields Stadium due to safety concerns for players and fans.

In summary, Highlanders are determined to bounce back from their recent setbacks and compete for the premier league title, despite their recent struggles and challenges in the championship race.
