Freese Ecstatic With Win

Platinum Stars head coach, Allan Freese, was on Saturday delighted with his side’s 2-0 victory over Ajax Cape Town at the Cape Town Stadium.

Freese, who was recently installed as coach on a full-time basis, was happy with how his troops rallied in their last game for 2013 which saw the Phokeng-based outfit finish fifth on the PSL table going into the Christmas break.

“What good football. I'm happy for the supporters that came to watch, that was brilliant football. At least we go home with a smile. We go into the festive season in the top four, where we wanted to be,” said Freese.

“I'm happy for the result, but unlucky to Ajax - I just think we played some good football. We could have scored more maybe, and I'm happy with the way we defended, we defended well - I'm very happy about the result.”

Stars, who led 2-0 at the interval through goals by Solomon Mathe and Robert Ng'ambi, have picked up where they left off last season after narrowly losing the Absa Premiership title to Kaizer Chiefs by finishing as runners-up. Dikwena have won the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout titles in 2013, and also reached the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup in May.

The victory sees Stars finish the year in fifth place, eight points adrift of leaders Kaizer Chiefs.

On February 4, Stars will take a trip to clash with Polokwane City at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in their first game of 2014.
