FC PLATINUM will be hoping for their second Castle Lager Premier Soccer League win on the trot when they host Chicken Inn at Mandava on Saturday.

Platinum beat Flame Lily 3-0 on Wednesday for their first win of the season after goals from Thabani Kamusoko, Walter Musona and Donald Ngoma. The win was a welcome boost having started off with a 2-2 home draw and a 1-0 loss to Caps United.

Wednesday’s win saw Norman Mapeza’s boys move from 14th to eighth place on the league table with four points, three behind the trio of ZPC Kariba, Highlanders and Caps United.

Platinum have a game in hand after their match against Harare City last week was postponed as they were playing in the Caf Confederation Cup.

Chicken Inn are third on the table with nine points after three wins from four matches and will be seeking a win of their own to keep track of the leading duo.

In other weekend matches, ZPC host Dongo Sawmills on Saturday at Gwanzura and with the form of leading scorer Raphael Manuvire, there is no doubt Saul Chaminuka’s men are gunning for maximum points to close the gap on leaders Triangle and Dynamos.

Manuvire has scored four times in three matches.

ZPC have had a restful week after the match against Chapungu on Easter Monday was cancelled due to a waterlogged pitch at Ascot Stadium in Gweru.

Elsewhere, How Mine host Harare City at Luveve to complete the Saturday roster.

On Sunday, Dynamos are at Gwanzura against Flame Lily while the big match of the weekend pits Triangle and Caps United at Gibbo.

Highlanders play their second home fixture against Chapungu hoping to collect maximum points, although they are struggling in front of goal.

They have scored just twice in two wins-both goals coming from defenders Teenage Hadebe and Webster Chingodza.

Bosso coach Bongani Mafu says the scoring duties do not belong to strikers alone and every player should weigh up with goals.

For Chapungu, without a win and a goal this season, a loss against Bosso might be the end of coach John Nyikadzino.

He is under pressure and the airmen’s leadership has made it no secret that his time is coming to an end.

Another winless team is Hwange and they have probably their easiest game of the season so far when they host equally winless Buffaloes at the Colliery while Tsholotsho, who started off with a 1-0 win over Harare City are away to Hwahwa at Ascot.

WEEKEND FIXTURES

Saturday:  ZPC Kariba v  Dongo Sawmill (Gwanzura), How Mine v Harare City (Luveve), FC Platinum v Chicken Inn (Mandava)
