Morale high in FC Platinum camp


FC PLATINUM is going into the semi-finals of the Chibuku Super Cup tomorrow against Black Rhinos hopeful of progressing to the final tournament.


Pure Platinum Play have enjoyed a steady rise in their form under the tutelage of Norman Mapeza, managing to pocket the Zimbabwe National Army Charity Cup and are now a single point short of a top-four finish. They are left with five games. The platinum miners will have to do battle without Qadr Amini, Marshal Mudewe and Steven Sibanda.

Kelvin Moyo and Wisdom Mutasa, who scored for the national team in the 2-0 win over Swaziland on Wednesday night, are likely not to be at Mapeza’s disposal because of the national assignment as they were only due back last night.

Club media liaison officer Chido Chizondo said: “We are going to miss those two boys. They have been doing very well. They might be in the country on match day, but I think it will be too late to include them in the team because they did not train.

“The coach will, however, have to find a plan in their absence. We have registered many players and they can step in. If they are on national duty we should respect that and it is good for us as a country as well.

“Morale in the camp is, however, very high and we are confident of doing well. Everyone is happy and they all want to win this game.”

In the absence of Moyo at centre-back, Mapeza can rely on the services of Aaron Katebe, James Marufu and Gift Bello. In midfield Simon Shoko can join Tatenda Dzumbunu and Thabani Kamusoko.
