FC Platinum captain Petros Mhari says they will stick to the coach’s game plan when they face Ngezi Platinum Stars in the Chibuku Super Cup final on Sunday.
The platinum miners clash in the country’s biggest knockout tournament at Mandava.
Kick Off is 2pm.
Both teams have won the tournament once.
“It should be clear that we should not change the way we play but stick to our usual game. We should stick to our usual game,” he said.
“Some youngsters will likely get a nod to feature in the game, and it will be their opportunity to grow in the game, and learn to play in crucial matches.
“We have been bracing ourselves for the match. It’s a final, the Platinum derby is an interesting match like all the other derbies.
“It feels good to be part of it and, considering it’s a final at stake, it makes the game crucial one. We are ready to take on Ngezi and, hopefully, we will have a great game.”
Mhari said it was an opportunity for players to shine against a very good Ngezi side.
“To my fellow teammates, I just remind them that this is an opportunity to shine as a team and, also, at individual levels,” he said.
“Clean sheets are crucial, in big matches like these and having one will be a delight.
“But, the game might turn into goals galore, and end up with a big score line.
“The important thing is to win the match, let the better team of the day win.”
