FC Platinum will have a chance to go top of the Castle Lager Premiership this afternoon when they take on Chicken Inn at White City Stadium in a rescheduled match.

FC Platinum have 30 points the same as log leaders Highlanders but are second due to an inferior goal difference.Highlanders like FC Platinum also have a game in hand.

Speaking ahead of the game Norman Mapeza has played down the incentive of going top saying he was more focused on getting a positive result and rather than focus on title talk now preferred to take each game as it comes.

‘We are going into the match wanting a positive result, not to go top of the table. We want to take each game as it comes and get a positive result added Mapeza.

Rahman Gumbo’s has had mixed results since taking over as head coach at the Gamecocks.  Gumbo’s side seem to be  keen to frustrate FC Platinum’s passing game  having decided to switch to the bumpy White City Stadium.

Chicken Inn head into the match mid-table with 19 points from 14 games so far and facing a tall order to defend the league title crown.
