Highlanders head coach Erol Akbay has ruled out winning the title this season as the team is struggling  financially.

Lack of funds hinder the club from buying top strikers.

The Dutchman, who led Bosso to a top three finish in his first season in charge, said winning the Premiership title would be a bonus for Highlanders in 2017.

"A top three finish will be good for us. Winning the championship depends on the club's ability to bring in a top striker who can score goals" he said.

"Another thing that might win us the title is if we play good football like we did last year. The major challenge in my own assessment is that the club is facing financial challenges, which means we really have to lift the team's spirits.
