FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza has admitted that the game against a well drilled How Mine yesterday at Mandava stadium was very tough for them.

Pure Platinum Play got the maximum points through Kelvin Moyo’s solitary strike on the stroke of first half to go level with table leaders Chicken Inn only separated by goal diference.

Speaking to the Sunday Mail after the game, Mapeza said the game was a tough one but he gave credit to his boys for holding on.

“Very difficult game, I’m just short of words but at the end of the day the most important thing is we managed to get three points,” he said.

“From the word go it was a very difficult game, we had some chances but credit should go to How Mine, I think they really came here with a game plan, they really pushed.

“One nil sometimes is okay but the pressure is still on us, if you get another goal it becomes much easier. But you know at the end of the day that’s what God wanted. We just have to be grateful.”

FC Platinum have now won their last four games with the same margin. They are now second on log with 51 points
