Dikwena Aim To Take Advantage Of Wounded Sundowns

Platinum Stars Are Going After Mamelodi Sundowns

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 26, 2017 03:07 PM
Platinum Stars haven’t won a game since beating SuperSport United 1-0 on the final day of last season, but Vuyo Mere believes that they are close to turning a corner there.
 
 
Dikwena conceded nine and scored only two in their opening six games of the season, and were one of the first clubs to make a coaching change after they replaced Peter Butler with Roger de Sa just three games into the campaign.
 
Now, with De Sa’s team preparing to take on Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday afternoon, their skipper thinks that the players themselves have to take responsibility.
 
He told Stars’ official website, “It’s not the start we were expecting especially after competing in CAF Confederation Cup last season. There are a lot of things that have contributed to our poor start. It’s no excuse, as players we are responsible. We are the ones who get onto the pitch. We have to produce the results. Whatever happens at the top or down, it’s none of our business. Ours is to make sure that we win matches. That’s what we have to do.” 
 
 
But it won’t be easy as they come up against a wounded Sundowns side left reeling by their CAF Champions League exit, and Mere went on to say, “We are hoping things will turn out well. In our situation at the bottom, we can’t go any further down. We can only go up. We just need one win. We have a good coach now and we have no excuses. We just have to fix our mistakes. Once we get the three points, we would be well on our way up. We know we don’t belong down there and we believe that we can take ourselves up.”
 
Stars host Masandawana at 15h00 on Sunday.

@Binda_Bucks1 That is what they're expecting to do for their fans but i don't see them succeed on the league because many teams are on higher gear

@Realydoctor10 I think downs will come back with back doors as they did last season and win a 2nd star via back door once more

What a shame to Vuyo and his teammates Sundowns is fully of anger now they want to do preparation for Cafe returns next season by winning the League so it will be a hard game between the two teams
