FC Platinum will be without the influential midfielder Kelvin Madzongwe for their last Total African champions league group match against Esperance at Babourfields Stadium in Bulawayo on Saturday.
Madzongwe, the only infield player to have played the entire 90 minutes of all their matches since the start of the campaign, is serving suspension together with Gift Bello and Elvis Moyo who was red-carded in the last match against Orlando Pirates.
Pure Platinum Play anchor the group standings with just two points, which they managed in the home and away draws against Orlando Pirates. The only positive for the team going into the Esperance match is that they managed to break the scoring jinx, and scored two goals away to Pirates.
Meanwhile, the visiting North African team arrived in the country on Friday morning.
