NORMAN Mapeza wants his men to remain calm and positive in their remaining games.

FC Platinum host Bulawayo City in their Castle Premier League Matchday 28 at Mandava.

“So far, so good, we can’t complain, the guys have been pushing and we are working on trying to reduce the load of our training sessions so that we don’t overload the guys,” he said.

“This is because of the travelling, and the game against Dynamos, which was difficult.

“But, our focus now is on the Bulawayo City game, it’s not going to be easy for us and these are two clubs, different objectives.

“I’m sure everybody knows they are trying to stay in the league, they’re trying to push to maintain their position on the log.

“So, it’s not going to be an easy game for us on Saturday but we’ve been talking to the boys and what is important now is to stay focused, remain humble and always try to have a positive mentality.

“The remaining games are not going to be easy at all.”

He says they are not under any pressure though their objective is clear.

“They know what is at stake and where we are in terms of our position on the log.

“They also know that we’ve got seven games remaining and what is needed for us to do in those remaining games, everybody knows about it.

“What is important is to go there with the same mentality.

“We’ve been playing our football without any pressure, even with our performance last Sunday, we didn’t have any pressure at all.

“We know as coaches that at the end of the day, in the game of football, there are three results and it is up to us to get a result which will make us happy.

“I’m not going to put our players under pressure, everybody knows our position, objectives.”

He added:

“It’s difficult, it’s the same as in our last game against Whawha, we are teams with different objectives.

“We are trying to maintain our position on the log and they’re trying to survive relegation.

“These games are always difficult so we just have to concentrate on what is in front of us.”
