Rhinos should have won, says Stix Mutizwa

Black Rhinos coach, Stix Mutizwa, has said his troops should have won their premier league home clash against FC Platinum at Morris Depot on Tuesday.

The premier league debutants played out to a disappointing goalless draw against last season premier league runners up in a match which Rhinos epitomized sheer extravagance. The hosts could have put five past the visitors in the first half alone.

“. . . I think we were supposed to win this game. We missed a lot of chances; yes, we are creating chances and we were missing them. Still, we are going to work on our strikers. [FC] Platinum are a very good side, coached by a tactician coach, Norman Mapeza, I respect him,” Mutizwa told journalists after the match.

Black Rhinos now sit on second place with 10 points. Had they utilised all their chances against Platinum, they would have shot to top of the premier league table.

Rhinos, who have a game in hand, have three wins, one draw and one loss from five games.

Mutizwa said the premiership debutants’ record so far in the league was commendable and they would build on the momentum they have gathered.

“I’m happy that my boys are gaining ground each and every game. [They are] gaining confidence. I am looking forward to our next game against Triangle.

“So far so good. This is the period where we don’t want to relax. Because [for example] in the first round [of the season] most team don’t know what type of football [Black] Rhinos play. So this is the time we can catch up and] try to win, especially playing at home we must try and collect maximum points.

“It’s a pity that today we missed a lot of chances. We should have won the game, not taking away anything from Platinum, they also missed some chances, but we had better chances than them,” he said.
