Norman Mapeza is playing his cards close to his chest ahead of the Zvishavane derby this Saturday.

Mapeza told the ZBC News that the FC Platinum – Shabanie Mine tie set for Mandava is crucial and hopes for nothing short of a victory.

He also appealed to both sets of fans to conduct themselves in the spirit of football.

FC Platinum captain, Winston Mhango said he hopes his team will ride on the record that Shabanie Mine has never won at Mandava.

While FC Platinum and Ngezi Platinum have conceded the least number of goals, Shabanie has conceded the highest so far in the premiership.

For unknown reasons, the Maglas team coaches did not turn up for this Thursday’s joint media briefing.
