What a marvellous feeling to have won against Platinum Stars on the weekend!
Although it was a slender victory, collecting maximum points is all that matters at this stage of the season. The team dropped points in some of our recent games, so it was about time that we beat Platinum Stars. Now, Dikwena are a credible side who were always going to prove to be a hard nut to crack.
However, coming to Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium, we had to ensure that we overcome them, especially because games are coming thick and fast and the season will be over in the blink of an eye. Before the encounter, we were in ninth position on the league table, which is not where any ambitious team would like to see themselves.
The win has helped the club to get back into the top eight bracket... and now we have to hang on to that spot and possibly move up. When Ernst Middendorp came in after Clinton Larsen left the team, his mandate from management was to qualify us for the top eight and build from there for next season. He is doing well and deserves credit.
Let’s go for it in the remaining games!
