FC PLATINUM have made their intentions clear that they want to win the Castle Lager Premiership crown this year and they get their campaign underway at newly-promoted Chiredzi United tomorrow.Assistant coach Masimba Dinyero yesterday said they wanted a winning start at Chishamiso in the Lowveld.

“Every team in the league is targeting the championship and we are also targeting it,” said Dinyero.

“We have prepared well during the off season and mentally, physically, psychologically and technically we are prepared.

“Everything is well at the institution and we are not complaining. We have already prepared for the Chiredzi game and the better team of the day is going to win.” FC Platinum was the first team to hand Chiredzi United a heavy defeat when they beat Moses Chunga’s side 4-0 at home in a warm-up game.

Donald Ngoma, who is having trials in Europe, was on target as he scored a brace with other goals coming from Wisdom Mutasa and Njabulo Ncube.

It could not be established if Ncube will be part of the team amid reports that he could have been disillusioned by life in Zvishavane and wants to return to Bulawayo and play for Bosso.

Ncube did not train with the team on Tuesday but yesterday he was back in Zvishavane.

Ncube has a one-year contract with the miners.

Wisdom Mutasa, Walter Musona and Stephen Sibanda have arrived to boost expectations at FC Platinum.

“There is now a big difference. We are now scoring more goals as compared to last season,” said Dinyero.

“We managed to beat Highlanders because we were determined, our morale is high and players are fighting for jerseys at training which is very health for us.”

Chunga is also confident that his team will stand to the challenge in the top-flight league.

“We have been training since January and I have played a couple of friendlies, something that has helped me to come up with best combinations,” said Chunga.

“We are now ready for the season and Chiredzi will bethe team to beat this season regardless of the fact that we are in our maiden year in the top-flight league.”
