FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza was happy with his team’s performance on Monday despite dropping points for the first time this season.

The Platinum Boys drew 2-2 against Mushowani Stars in a Match-day 3 encounter played at Rufaro Stadium in Harare.

The visitors got their goals from Elvis Moyo and Never Tigere in either half while the hosts went on target through Evans Katema who converted a penalty before the break and Blessing Phiri in the second period.

“I think it was a good game of football. We had our moments when we were the better team and they had theirs,” said Mapeza.

But the coach thinks the penalty was the turning point as it allowed Mushowani to come back into the game.

“I think it changed everything, it changed the course of the game, there were only about six minutes to go to the break.

“But, well done to my boys, we have to go back and prepare for our game against Hwange. Mushowani are a good side, you could see the numbers at the back.”

The reigning champions are now in the third position, two points behind the leading pack of Chicken Inn and Hwange.
