Caps United face Platinum test

CHAMPIONS, Caps United, face one of the biggest test in their bid to defend the league title when they host FC Platinum in a Castle Lager Premiership tie at the National Sports Stadium on Wednesday.

The Green Machine have been struggling for fluency since their return from the African Champions League where they crashed out in the group stage.

Their African Champions League campaign left them with a huge back log as they have played only 15 matches while other teams have already played 21 thus far.

In those matches, they have managed just 18 points, having won four, drawn six and lost five and remain stuck on third position from the bottom on the league table.

But assistant coach Mark Mathe believes after collecting four points in their last two matches, they are back on track.

“Look, every game we are playing in the PSL is a big game and we will approach the FC Platinum match like any other. It’s not that we disrespect FC Platinum. We do respect them, they have a good coach and good players. It will be difficult of course but we will try our best to get the three points,” he said.

Mathe reckoned that the team has been doing well of late after collecting four points in their last two matches.

“I think we have been doing well, we collected four points, the victories against ZPC Kariba and the draw against Tsholotsho.

Even the games we have been losing, as a technical team we are happy we are getting back to our normal selves. We are starting to play with fluency.

It’s just that the goals have been elusive and we have been conceding but we went back to the drawing board. Against FC Platinum, we are looking forward to a good performance,” said Mathe.
