PREMIERSHIP outfit Bulawayo City will be hoping for better fortunes when they host Champions FC Platinum on Saturday after a long barren spell.
Results have been elusive for a struggling Bulawayo City who last tasted victory during a derby with Highlanders.
The municipality-owned side has been affected by a funding model which is not open to lure competitive players, forcing the team to rely on fringe ones from other clubs.
However, Assistant Coach, Johannes Ngodzo sayS this week the heavens may open for them when they host FC Platinum.
“Sesilesikhathi sacina ukuwinner, (but we are trying to motivate the players to turn the corner .hopefully on Saturday we collect maximum points).” said the coach Ngodzo.
Although, Bulawayo City is eager to collect three points to restore confidence in the players, Captain Vincent Moyo is aware it won’t be an easy task.
“We have been introspecting to see where we are getting wrong. Saturday’s game is a do or die encounter for us,” said the captain.
Without a clear commitment to support the municipality-owned side, motivating the players will remain a pipe dream for the coaches who are eager to save the team from sinking further into the murky waters of relegation.
