Football coaches often plead for prolonged time before producing results, but Norman Mapeza could disagree with that.
The former FC Platinum coach has needed just seven games to deliver the urgent results his club needed. From Mapeza's seven games in charge, he has only lost three times while winning four and drawing one.
Mapeza arrived while the Port Elizabeth side languished at the bottom of the merciless Absa Premiership, and fast forward to a few weeks and the team known as the Chilli Boys are placed 11th in the 16-team table.
Two of Mapeza’s biggest wins came away at some very unforgivig places. Chippa traveled to formidable opponent such as AmaZulu to grab all three points and again flew to Cape Town City for another win.

Up next will be a home clash against second-placed the SuperSport United on Saturday 21 December. With only two points off the bottom, there's plenty of work still ahead for Mapeza.
