Zvishavane – FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza has come under pressure after failing to maximise on points in the previous three games with the most recent disappointment being the one all draw with Mutare City at Mandava stadium over the weekend.
Despite having to share the spoils in the previous three games, FC Platinum remains log leaders with a two point margin ahead of Harare giants Caps United.
Coach Norman Mapeza expressed dissatisfaction on the results he got the past week after being held twice at home with Hwange FC and Mutare FC and once with Caps Utd in Harare.
"It's a good thing that we did not lose all the points, but there is nothing to smile about. The boys are not performing to my expectations. I felt we could have won our home games. Hope we will rediscover our winning formula in no time.
"We have to go back to the drawing board and work on new strategies. If we are to make it in the Premier League we have to improve on our offensive. We have not been playing well and as a team we have to work on how best we can deliver on goals.
"I am still hopeful though. We still have a long way to go and I am sure we will return to our winning ways in the coming games. Our fans should not be disheartened by the poor results," said Mapeza.
FC Platinum had to salvage a point of the game after the visitors took the lead in the first half after their defense line was turned into pillars of salt by sleek passing from the Mutare City strike force.
Mapeza also expressed disappointment with what he called poor officiating which he claims has cost his side a number of strategic victories.news
