FC Platinum have left the country for an away fixture against Orlando Pirates slated for Friday evening at Orlando Stadium.

The Platinum miners spokesperson Chido Chizondo said while some may consider the encounter irrelevant, Friday’s clash is important for the club.

FC Platinum are yet to score in the group phase of the CAF champions league and head coach Norman Mapeza will be hoping his charges will be able to break the duck when they face the Sea Robbers.

FC Platinum have drawn one and lost three of their CAF champions league encounters, leaving them anchoring the group with still two games to play.

ES Tunis of Tunisia is leading Group B with 8 points, followed by Horoya of Conakry Guinea with 7 points and Orlando Pirates with 5 points.
