NGEZI Platinum Stars coach Takesure Chiragwi is confident his team will bounce back and win their first league title despite setback suffered in their defeat to Dynamos this week.
The leaders lost 0-1 at the National Sports Stadium, on a day closest rivals Highlanders and FC Platinum also failed to collect maximum points.
DeMbare could slash Ngezi Platinum’s lead at the top to five points, if they manage maximum points at Manica Diamonds.
“When you are playing football, you need to have that courage because you lose, you win and you draw,” said Chiragwi.
“All these three results are part of the game.
“So, when you get one of these results, that is what football is about, you have to accept and admit and make sure you pick yourself up and move forward.
“The only thing that you can be worried about is when the team is not performing.
“If we perform better and lose, we don’t mind because we know from that performance that the difference was on the goals and then we make sure we go and rectify how we are supposed to defend, and make sure we don’t concede and we also score and win games.”
“The eight-point lead is because we have done our job and we deserve to have the points because no one gave them to us on a silver platter but we worked for them.
“So, we need to keep on working hard.”
