Lizwe Sweswe started his reign as the FC Platinum coach with a victory over UD Sango in the first leg of the CAF Champions League first-round encounter played in Bulawayo on Saturday.

Sweswe took over the team on Thursday following the departure of Norman Mapeza who was at the helm for five years.

His first assignment ended in a 1-0 victory, thanks to a 21st-minute effort from Never Tigere.

The result gives the Platinum Boys an edge going into the second leg that will be played in a fortnight in Beira.
