Freese: I'm Happy For The Club

Platinum Stars coach Allan Freese thanked his players for their commitment after they beat Wits 2-1 tonight at the Bidvest Stadium, to qualify for the MTN8 final.

He also thanked the technical staff and the club for their preparation, and was happy with win, despite lamenting the fact that his team weren't able to play the way that they wanted.

Dikwena won the first leg of the semi-final 4-2 at home, and their 2-1 won tonight, means they won 6-3 over both legs.

"First and foremost I'd like to thank the players for showing commitment. I'd like to thank the technical staff for  getting them ready for the game, sorting the players out so that we could have fresh players on the ground. I'd like to thank the supporters who came to watch the game.  

"I'm happy that we could get to the final, I'm happy for the club, the players, for everyone in involved with the club.

"We didn't play the way we were supposed to play, although we got the goals, but in the last ten minutes I think we saw the way Platinum Stars play. But I'm happy that we won.

"In the first half we just couldn't play, as Gavin had also done his homework like every coach would, so we were stopped from playing from the back, and that became our problem. But once we could play from the back, we had a couple of chances, and then we went forward.

"This means a lot for the club, and the province of North West, that a team from so far can also get into the final, and I'm happy for the support that we've got."
