Platinum remain dangerous – Sweswe

HARARE - Tsholotsho coach Lizwe Sweswe says his team will take a cautious approach in tomorrow’s Castle Lager Premiership match against the wounded FC Platinum.

The league debutants travel to Mandava Stadium tomorrow to face an FC Platinum side low on confidence after three consecutive defeats.

Norman Mapeza’s side losing ran began when they were clobbered 1-3 at home by log leaders Chicken Inn before losing 2-1 to Harare City at Rufaro Stadium.

Last weekend, the Zvishavane-based side lost 2-1 to league newcomers Whawha and now find themselves in 13th place with only four points.

While the platinum miners have been inconsistent thus far, Sweswe is not letting his team’s guard sleep and is bracing for a tough match.

“The fact that FC Platinum are currently struggling makes it even more difficult to beat them on Friday,” Sweswe told the Daily News yesterday.

“We are looking to register a positive result but it’s a game that we need to approach with caution.

“We need to adopt the right attitude otherwise we will fail to collect maximum points. Playing against a wounded team is a bit tricky and you know FC Platinum is not a bad team but we are in the league to compete and we are ready to do the job.”

Tsholotsho have started their debut season in the top flight relatively well and are currently sitting on eighth place on the log with eight points after two wins, two draws and two defeats.

“So afar I am happy with the performance of my boys they are playing as a team, as I told you before our major aim is to avoid relegation this season and after that we can fight for honours,” Sweswe added.
