BULAWAYO Chiefs underlined their tag as “giant-killers” by claiming the scalp of a 10-man Highlanders in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Barbourfields yesterday.

By beating Bosso, Chiefs became the only side to have beaten the present top three teams. They first beat log leaders FC Platinum 2-0 in the early stages of the season and handed Ngezi Platinum Stars their first defeat of the season by pipping them 1-0 last week.

A well struck free-kick by Gracious Muleya from the edge of the box in the 33rd minute, found the top left corner of the net to give Chiefs maximum points.

The resultant free-kick came following a bizarre back pass from Nigel Makumbe, who decided to break his team’s attack in the Chiefs’ half and caught keeper Ariel Sibanda by surprise.

Sibanda’s first touch from the high back pass let him down, as the ball fell to a pressing Farau Matare, whose shot was blocked by the keeper with his hands outside the box. Referee Mhaka Magare flashed a red card to send him for an early shower.
