We can beat Highlanders ... Lloyd Mutasa

FC PLATINUM are eyeing a third piece of silverware this year when they take on Highlanders in a ZNA Charity Shield semifinal match at Barbourfields Stadium on Sunday.

The platinum miners are looking to add on to the CG Msipa Cup and Independence Trophy.

But they have to get past Highlanders and meet the winner between Dynamos and Caps United who clash in another semi-final match in Harare on the same day.

Conquering Highlanders this season is not a new thing to FC Platinum who beat the Bulawayo giants in the Independence Trophy on their way to ultimately claim it in the final against Dynamos.

Coach Lloyd Mutasa believes Highlanders will not make life easy for them.

“We beat them in their own backyard in the Independence Trophy but that is history now, we will not be fooled by that and relax,” Mutasa said.

“Highlanders will be pushed by that defeat and try by all means not to  lose at home again. So it is going to be a very tough match for us. We need to be at our best and we have been preparing for that.”

Mutasa will be without midfielder Marshall Mudehwe who is with the Warriors.

But it is Highlanders who are most hit by absentees in Milton Ncube, Peter Moyo and Kuda Mahachi who are also travelling with the Warriors.

It is not certain if goalkeeper Munyaradzi Diya will also make it to Tanzania.
