Rioting Highlanders fans brought ugly scenes to Barbourfields Stadium when they clashed with police who fired tear gas to disperse them at the end of a thrilling match in which their team lost in the first leg of the Bob 89 Super Cup here yesterday.

After an exciting match that produced three goals in five minutes in the first half there was drama at the end as Highlanders faithful started attacking Dembare fans at the final whistle.

A number of fans were struck by missiles thrown by suspected Bosso fans.

Outside the venue, several vehicles in the parking bays were stoned as the melee also spread to the surrounding suburbs of Mzilikazi and Barbourfields.

Baton-wielding police officers had to fire teargas to displace and quell the marauding crowd.

A number of fans were trapped inside the stadium as they could not leave in fear of getting caught up in the skirmishes.




There were further running battles between the police and the fans at Machipsini along Luveve Road near Nguboyenja suburb where several commuter omnibus ferrying people from the city centre were stoned.

Bulawayo police spokesperson, Mandlenkosi Moyo however played down the scuffles saying: "Violence was brewing but we moved in to calm the situation. No arrests were made but we just picked up a few individuals for questioning."
