Highlanders coach Erol Akbay Wednesday took a swipe at his strike force accusing them of being too wasteful.

 That was despite  a two one victory in which his twin strikers, Prince Dube and Roderick Mutuma scored in Beitbridge against Tsholotsho.

"It's OK we have managed to collect three points, but my boys wasted a lot of chances. We could have sealed the match in the first half.

However, we played good football and need to keep up the momentum.

"Our hosts gave us a good fight in all departments. They were coming all out at us. You will note that they kept fighting and capitalised on our mistakes and scored one goal," he said in his post match interview.

The victoty saw the Bulawayo giants move to number to on the log with nine points, one point behind leaders Ngezi Platinum.

On the other hand Tsholotsho coach Farai Tawachera who had earlier on warned Highlanders was full of praise for his side.

"Considering that we are coming from another tough game against Caps United, we played our hearts out and matched our opponents man-to-man.

"This was anyone's game and unfortunately Highlanders won. We will stick to our type of play when we face Shabanie on Sunday. I am confident that we will get good results," he said.

He also commended Beitbridge residents for supporting the team in their numbers.
