Tsholotsho 0-0 FC Platinum
FC PLATINUM dropped two crucial points as they were held to a goalless draw by Tsholotsho in a Castle Premiership match at Luveve Stadium on Saturday.
Looking to cut the gap on leaders Chicken Inn by to two points, Platinum fell short despite creating numerous chances.
They however moved to 45 points, four off Chicken Inn, who play Dynamos (42) on Sunday at Barbourfields.
“We were in control of everything but we lacked creativity in the final third. For me, it’s a golden point and it was a good performance from my boys,” said Platinum coach Mapeza after the game.
Tsholotsho coach Lizwe Sweswe said it was all about survival in the league.
“We are trying to survive relegation and in every game that we play, we must pick up a point or three. This point will help us going forward in the relegation fight,” Sweswe said.
