Platinum Derby in Chibuku Cup final

Staff Reporter

FC Platinum will be aiming for a second Chibuku Super Cup in three seasons and a return to continental competition when they clash with fellow platinum miners Ngezi Platinum in the final on Saturday.

Norman Mapeza’s men won the Chibuku Super Cup in 2014, by beating Harare City on penalties, in a match played in their Mandava Stadium backyard.

But this time around they will be away from home, visiting Ngezi Platinum at Baobab Stadium.

Mapeza is however not reading much into the venue issue but the match at hand.

“Only God knows what is going to happen on Saturday but, our goal is to win the match. It is a Cup final and we have been there so we know what to expect,” Mapeza said.

“The result on the day decides the winner but, the match began by preparing. It has already started and we are us going there to finish the 90 minutes. It would be good for us, if we win inside that time and avoid penalties like the last time. You never know who wins during the 90 minutes so the job has to be done earlier.”

Mapeza will miss Charles Sibanda and Winston Mhango who were recently involved in a car accident.

The winner of the Chibuku Super Cup, plays in the Caf Confederations Cup in which FC Platinum were part of last season.
