FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza is hoping his team will bounce back to winning ways when they host CAPS United on Saturday.

Pure Platinum Play are yet to pick up maximum points in the second half of the season. They lost 2-1 to ZPC Kariba in the Match-day 18 and drew 1-1 with Yadah in the following round.

Nonetheless, FC Platinum are still on top of the standings with a four-point advantage over second-placed Ngezi Platinum Stars.

“Like I said before the second half of the season is not going to be easy, we did not start well, but the most important thing for us is not to lose focus,” said Mapeza.

“We are still on course to achieve our end-of-season targets, so we only need to keep working hard.

“Football differs every season, yes, we have not been getting some positive results against CAPS United, but this is a new ball game.

The Zvishavane side has failed to beat their Saturday opponents since April 2014.
