Champions FC Platinum will have a lot to do this Saturday when they lock horns with Egyptian giants Al Ahly at Babourfields on Saturday.

The reverse fixture ended 2-0 in favour of Al Ahly and the Zvishavane based side will have a lot to prove to beat their opponents.

Platinum Boys haven’t registered a single point this season as they lost all their three games.

They lost their opening match 2-1 to Al Hilal Omdurman, 3-0 defeat at home to Etoile de Sahel and of course their defeat to Al Ahly last month.


Pure Platinum play are currently sitting at the bottom of group B with 0 points.

FC Platinum shot-stopper says he is ready for the Egyptians and believes better results are coming despite their poor form in continental football.

“It’s a tough game but we have to win on Saturday and I know we have been performing badly at the competition but it’s high time we start to collect points especially when playing at home.

“We are still learning and we will do better as time goes on, we need to believe as a team that we can do it but results will come.

“We also need to keep working hard as a team and believe that we can win against those teams.

“We are playing at home so we have to play with a lot of confidence and everything will follow.

“Our fans they have to keep on supporting us, the sky is the limit so we will make them happy along this journey.

“And as for us players we have to be strong when things are not going well so that we can support and encourage each other,” he said.
