EIGHT years ago, Ngezi Platinum Stars goalkeeper, Nelson Chadya, helped the miners win the Chibuku Super Cup on their maiden appearance in the Premiership.
He was still virtually unknown in what was also his debut season in the top-flight league.
The Mhondoro side still only have the Chibuku Super Cup to show in their stay in PSL.
Ngezi Platinum Stars have been twice second best in this tournament.
They are facing Triangle United at Boabab tomorrow in this first round of the knockout competition.
“It’s been a while since we last won something for the team.
“We have a good squad which is quite similar to the one we had in 2016, we have depth, the character is also there and it needs every player to be at his best.
“I have much faith in this squad that we can go a long way in this competition but it’s not easy but believe this could be our chance to win this tournament if we all push to the limits,” said Chadya.
Ngezi Platinum Stars have a big chance to claim a league and cup double as they seem to be doing well in the Castle Lager Premiership championship marathon.
They are sitting just five points off pace setters, Highlanders after 18 fixtures.
Triangle are not push overs in this competition.
They won this competition for the first time in 2018 under the tutelage of Taurai Mangwiro.
It also makes this assignment a tricky affair as the Sugar Boys still have players who were part of that success.
Midfielder, Russel Madamombe, played a significant role in helping the team to win the trophy.
And, he has been a key figure in helping the Chiredzi side to entertain their hopes of maintaining their PSL status.
Madamombe feels they have a huge task at hand but he insisted if they are to lose, they will go down fighting.
“We are playing one of the most organised teams in the league and their position on the standings tells much about their capabilities.”
