FC Platinum seek first PSL win


FC PLATINUM will be searching for their first win of the domestic Castle Lager Premier Soccer League. (PSL) when they host Harare giants Caps United at Mandava Stadium tomorrow.


The platinum miners have been near perfect in cup competitions winning the CG Msipa charity and the Uhuru cup, but have failed to replicate that form in the league.

The Uhuru Cup champions have played three matches drawing twice against Chiredzi and Chicken Inn before losing to Hwange.

Lloyd “Samaita” Mutasa will go into the match to display his tactical wits against Taurai Mangwiro of Caps United without the services of his longtime trusted lieutenant Masimba Dinyero, who parted ways with the Zvishavane side this week.

But Mutasa will not lose sleep with the gap left by Dinyero in the technical department and is concentrating on collecting his first three points.

“You don’t rely on an individual when you are in an institution, there are others left in the technical department who can do the job with me. But his departure was solely for professional reasons,” Mutasa said.

He added: “We are preparing for them (Caps United) just like any other team and our aim will be collecting maximum points in all the matches.

“We are not under pressure as such to win, but football has always been a pressure game and we hope that this time we will come right to win at home.

“Only Livingstone (Genti), Njabulo (Ncube) are doubtful for the game,” Mutasa added.

Caps United coach Taurai Mangwiro surprisingly refused to talk to the media referring questions to the team manager Luis Maio. The Green machine is, however, unbeaten this season with two draws against ZPC Kariba and Buffaloes and a win against Harare City.

In their last match against Buffaloes Caps United players were accused of doing primitive practices when they sprinkled urine on the bench of their visiting opponents.
