FC Platinum coach Lizwe Sweswe says they will be looking for nothing short of victory when they face Black Rhinos in a Premiership encounter at Mandava this afternoon.
The defending champions are chasing a third successive title which Sweswe believes is still attainable.
Pure Platinum Play, who are on 56 points, trail leaders CAPS United by two points with two matches remaining.
They will go top of the standings if they beat Rhinos and CAPS drop points at Ngezi Platinum.
“As I have been saying we will treat every game as it comes. This is another important game we need to play with a positive mind and get the positive result.
“The boys know what is at stake. We want to win the league again and that can only be achieved if we win tomorrow (today),” said Sweswe.
The platinum miners are coming from a 3-0 defeat to Etoile du Sahel in the CAF Champions League and Sweswe said they have moved on.
“We can’t be stuck in the past. We have moved on and the focus is now on the Rhinos game. This is a completely different match which comes with a different approach.
“Unlike in the Champions League where we have chances to recover, it’s different with this one. If we lose the game we are doomed,” he said.
Though he bemoans fatigue, Sweswe believes his men will rise and post the desired result going into the final match of the season.
FC Platinum travel to CAPS United for their last game of the season on Saturday which will be a decider, however, depending on today’s results.
CAPS are away to Ngezi Platinum.
“Well the boys are tired but we have to deal with it. It’s the decisive moment of the league. So we will just give everything and see how it ends.
“We are concentrating on our side, to get positive results in the remaining matches. We would want to put ourselves under unnecessary pressure particularly at this stage,” said Sweswe.
