Highlanders coach Madinda Ndlovu said that neither himself nor his players are under pressure as one poor result follows another.
Mandinda said this after Bosso limped to a goalless draw at lowly Mushowani Stars in a Premier League match played on Saturday. Said Madinda:
What is the pressure about? This is a marathon, and this is a competition which we have to look at and say what is it that we want at the end of the day.
What has gone wrong at Highlanders to play differently from last season? This is because of that one aspect we did not do right.
We did not do right in preparations, you do right in your preparations then you are guaranteed of starting well.
We are trying to live with it and trying not to push the players into blaming themselves for what they did (strike) because probably it was the right thing to do so and we cannot crucify them for that.
These are the players that I was supposed to be coaching but they were not there and we must understand that and I am not even pressured at all.
Mushowani Stars coach Newman Mushipe felt that his boys could have beaten Highlanders if they had taken their chances. He said:
I am happy that we have managed to keep a clean sheet for the first time this season. My boys played very well and I feel we could have beaten Highlanders had we managed to convert our chances.
