Dikwena’s ‘Dying Horse’ – We Need Killer Instinct

Manti Mekoa Says Platinum Stars Are A Dying Horse

By Soccer Laduma - May 07, 2018 05:31 PM
Manti Mekoa says that Platinum Stars are like a ‘dying horse’, and believes that they must not lose their heads going into the final game of their Absa Premiership season.
Dikwena face Platinum Stars on Saturday afternoon as the curtain comes down on their current stay in the top-flight following a difficult season, with Roger de Sa’s team staring life in the National First Division right in the face.
Mekoa has played 12 games since he joined Stars earlier in the year, and up until now is yet to taste victory in a league game as he was suspended for the win over Polokwane City last month.
In a press release, the 32-year-old said, “It’s the last kick of a dying horse and we need that killer instinct. When we create chances, we must take them. We have to go all out. We have no choice. Obviously we mustn’t lose our heads, so we need to be smart about it as well. Everyone knows it’s a must win. Irrespective of other results, we have to take care of what’s in our hands.”
He added, “Hope, belief and faith will see us through. I have to have faith in our strikers and whoever gets a chance to put the goals away. I have to have faith in our defenders that we don’t concede goals.
“It’s a major concern that we fight and keep creating chances but we don’t convert. We have to be resilient in our game and score goals. If you get a second chance you have to grab it with both hands. As long as there’s a small chance, I still have faith that we will make it.”
Dikwena host the Clever Boys at 15h00 on Saturday.

Cowditor you need to proofread your articles before publishing them. School boy errors like this is unacceptable at this level. In light of the article's gist, Dikwena made a huge blunder in letting go some of the pillars of the team in Mathe and co, without any credible replacements. They desrve to be axed

A dying horse and a dead horse is two deterrent things. Platinum Stars resemble the latter.

Roger De Sa thought he was very smart.He and his partners pounced on the team when it was struggling and bought it a pittance.One just hope it was not his evil intentions to make the team struggle so that him and his cronies can purchase it at a devalued price.Less did he know that Platinum Stars would eventually get relegated . You denied the people of the North West a team in the PSL. Welcome to the NFD Roger.Youl'll have to finance the team from your own pockets and with meagre monthly grants from the PSL. Good riddance with your selfish ideas!
