FC Platinum Seeks Redemption Against Highlanders

Spread the love

Champions FC Platinum are seeking to put their title defence back on track with a win against Highlanders in the headline match of the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League weekend fixtures at Mandava stadium on Saturday.

FC Platinum are fourteen points behind the log leaders Highlanders and have gone for six matches without a win but chairman Smartfin Techu is unfazed as he believes that they have the pedigree to overhaul the deficit and win the league title.

“We have been there before and I believe we have the mental strength to dust ourselves up and turnaround the bad patch we are currently going through,” Techu said.

“We are going to give our all against Highlanders and we are looking forward to regain our winning formula in this match. We are absolutely under no pressure unlike what some people have been saying. We have been in this situation before, where people ruled us out but we managed to put up strong finish towards the end of the season last year.”

“We have just been going through a bad patch but we have been working around the clock as a team to put this behind us. We know as the defending champions a lot of focus is on us but I can assure our stakeholders that, results will start coming back and everyone associated with the club will be happy again”.

Last season, FC Platinum overhauled a fourteen point gap against Dynamos at around the same to eventually win the league title ahead of Chicken Inn who pipped Dynamos to finish second.

FC Platinum lost the last two home matches against Simba Bhora and Sheasham before sharing spoils in the 1-1 draw against Cranborne Bullets away at Nyamhunga stadium last weekend.

The Norman Mapeza coached side recently unleashed an 18 year old Zvishavane High School student Beven Kaitano in their 4-0 win against Yadah in the Chibuku Super Cup first round.
