FC Platinum are on the verge of being crowned 2017 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League after they came from behind to beat Ngezi Platinum at Mandava Stadium.

The Zvishavane side went into the match two points above second placed Dynamos while Ngezi were on third position. 

Norman Mapeza’s side needed to collect maximum and hope Bantu Rovers were able to stop Dynamos at Barbourfields stadium in Bulawayo.

However, a clinical performance by Dembare in the first half coupled with school boy blunders from the Bantu Rovers backline saw Dembare score three easy goals.

The Glamour Boys got their goals through Christian Epoupa Ntouba in the 6th minute from a Quality Kangadze pass.

Another defensive mishap by seasoned campaigner Dumisani Ndlovu allowed Dynamos to double their lead with Quality Kangadze blasting the ball past Wellington Muuya, to send the Dynamos fans into a frenzy.

In the 24th minute, another mistake by Tapiwa Khumbuyani gifted Ocean Mushure with a chance to guide the ball past an exposed Muuya for Dembare’s third goal of the afternoon. 

At Mandava stadium, in the same minute, Michael Charamba gave the visitors the lead a situation that favoured Dynamos. 

FC Platinum got the equaliser in the 45th minute through Kelvin Moyo. 

Macarthy Dube reduced the deficit to two goals when he latched onto a brilliant pass from Nyasha Garayi in the 47th minute.

Nigel Papius, a former FC Platinum player, scored from the penalty spot for Bantu Rovers two minutes into the second half to reduce the deficit to one goal and that put pressure on Dynamos. 

However, Dynamos managed to withstand the Bantu Rovers onslaught to win the match.

Rodwell Chinyengetere, once again turned hero for FC Platinum when he scored the winner and the home side fans invaded the pitch after the final whistle sparking wild celebrations.

FC Platinum now needs to win their last match against Chapungu at Ascot Stadium to be crowned champions.

Dynamos will be hoping FC Platinum stumble and they beat Chicken Inn for them to be crowned champions.
