FC PLATINUM coach Lloyd Mutasa will be seeking his first win in the Castle Lager Premiership season when his side takes on Caps United at Mandava on Saturday.

Platinum drew 1-1 with Chiredzi away, lost 3-2 to Hwange at home and threw away a 2-0 lead against Chicken Inn on Monday to draw 2-2 leaving them in 12th position on the log.

At the start of the week, Mutasa fired his assistant Masimba Dinyero as he felt he was no longer contributing to the cause of the team.

Mutasa, whose side beat Dynamos to win this year’s Independence Trophy, has admitted that the last minute lapses in the last two matches were a cause for concern.

“We are losing concentration towards the end of matches and I feel the midfield has to do more to protect the defence. We are scoring but we are not able to defend our leads,” he said.

“But we have been working on those gaps in front of the defence and I am sure we will come right.

“Caps is not an easy team; they have not lost in three games and are playing better than us, so we need to be on guard.”

Caps have won once and drawn twice.

The Harare side have been in the eye of a storm in the last few days for a urine-sprinkling incident in their last home draw against Buffaloes.
