The last time FC Platinum and Bulawayo Chiefs met was in May and the Premiership new boys pulled a shocker when many were least expecting it, beating the Champions 2-0 in a match played at Luveve Stadium.

Today the two sides meet again, and Pure Platinum Play are desperate for a win as they want to ease the pressure on the top.

They currently lead the table with 52 points while the team which follows on second is a point less.

Chiefs, on the other hand, Chiefs who managed to pick victories against giants Highlanders and Ngezi Platinum are tenth on 29 points.

Meanwhile, the home side is backing on the full strength of their squad since they have no suspension and injury worries.

In another match to be played this afternoon, Herentals are hosting Chapungu in the capital at Rufaro Stadium. The Airforce side won the reverse fixture and will be hoping to complete a double.
