Mapeza desperate for goal scorers to replace Chinyengetere
FC Platinum coach Norman Mapeza says his team will get back to the top once he gets players to stick the ball in the net.
With 12 goals scored in 11 games this season, Mapeza has invited two Nigerians and a Zambian player for assessments.
“We have to, we have some guys who are here on trials, they came here on Tuesday and we are still assessing them,” Mapeza told The Herald.
“But I have to be honest with you, we need someone to bang in those goals, not only one player, but maybe two players. Mapeza added that his former striker Rodwell Chinyengetere’s departure for Baroka FC in South Africa has left a huge void.

“Someone in the calibre of Rodwell (Chinyengetere) . . . It is not easy to find someone like that but those are the type of players we need because we have been creating opportunities,” he said.
Meanwhile, Platinum face Bulawayo Chiefs this weekend.
