FC PLATINUM coach Norman Mapeza is employing a cautious approach ahead of Saturday’s Caf Confederation Cup preliminary round, second leg tie against Kenya’s Sofapaka at Mandava Stadium.

The platinum miners go into the match carrying a 2-1 victory advantage registered in the reverse leg in Nairobi two weeks ago.

But Mapeza is refusing to read into their away win and feels their opponents can cause an upset.

“It is not over yet because there are still 90 minutes to play for. We respect Sofapaka because they played well when we visited them,” Mapeza said.

“That is why we are not ruling them out and I am telling my boys not to be complacent. We learnt a lot of things from the first leg.

"They gave us a good run for our money and they were just unfortunate not to convert chances that came their way. It is good we now know how they play.”

Donald Ngoma and Brian Muzondiwa scored for FC Platinum in Nairobi while Fiston Abdul Razak scored for Sofapaka.

Mapeza has declared an injury-free squad ahead of Saturday’s encounter.

Botswana referee Tirelo Mositwane will handle the match while assisted by compatriots Bakwena Simankalele and Madondo Kitso Sibanda with Omphile Phutego being the fourth official.

Filipe Lucas Johane from Mozambique would be the match commissioner.
