HIGHLANDERS Football Club coach Baltemar Brito put up a grin at yesterday’s press conference, as he said he hopes to get lucky and guide his team to a victory within 90 minutes of play against Dynamos.
Bosso plays host to Dynamos at Barbourfields Stadium tomorrow in a rearranged Matchday 5 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League fixture that was postponed to allow the giants to compete at the 43rd Independence celebrations.
Highlanders went on to lift the Uhuru Cup, doing so after penalty shootouts which they won 4-3. The Independence Cup game that was played at Mt Darwin had ended 0-0.
It was the second time for Brito to play Dynamos, having done so in the return leg of the 2021/22 Premiership season, an encounter that ended 0-0, with both teams playing boring football.
Then, Dynamos were under Tonderai Ndiraya and now they are under Herbert Maruwa, a gaffer who is on a mission to transform DeMbare.
Both coaches, Brito and Maruwa had the opportunity to spy on each other last weekend, with the former doing so 24 hours after his team drew 1-1 against Cranborne bullets at the National Sports Stadium.

Brito, happy that the rearranged match is being played on a holiday, is confident of a victory. Chronicle
