NORMAN Mapeza has refused to blame his players as FC Platinum’s run of poor form continued following an embarrassing home defeat to Simba Bhora over the weekend.
The veteran gaffer is satisfied with his men despite the fact that they have been a pale shadow of their former selves.
Pure Platinum Play suffered their third home defeat on the trot at Mandava Stadium, which used to be a tough venue for visiting teams.
They lost to Yadah, Sheasham and Simba Bhora in that order, dropping to sixth position with 26 points on their tally and 12 behind leaders Highlanders.
How they have played so far has left their chances to retain the PSL title doubtful.
The team has, however, retained free-flowing football, although struggling to grind results.
“If we talk of results, then it’s about me. We don’t take it on anybody else. We have to soldier on,” he said.
“Our situation at the moment is very difficult. It’s difficult and painful. I will take the blame but we have to soldier on.”
