Dikwena Legend On Stars' PSL Lifeline

Platinum Stars legend Patrick Malokase has urged his former side to take full advantage of the lifeline that has been handed to them to retain their PSL status.

Dikwena where all but doomed to play the upcoming season in the National First Division after the side was relegated before the final game of the season. However, following the ruling that Ajax Cape Town would forfeit their wins against SuperSport United and Dikwena as well as the draws against Polokwane City for fielding Tendai Ndoro who was ineligible to play means Stars have now been handed the lifeline to salvage their PSL status by competing in the play-offs.

“I was sad when Start got relegated. They are a special club and didn’t deserve to be relegated,” Malokase told the Siya crew.

“I know that no teams deserve to be relegated but Stars have a special place in my heart and I’m truly happy that the team has been given a second chance to play in the PSL should the ruling be upheld.

“Playing in the play-offs is never easy but the chance at playing in the PSL should motivate the team to do well. It hasn’t been the best season for the club but I believe that the players will be motivated enough to play for their PSL status. They should use this opportunity to the fullest,” added the Stars legend.

The changes resulting from the docked points from the Urban Warriors means that they drop down to 16th place with 24 points for the season resulting in automatic relegation, while Stars go to 15th with 27 points. Dikwena then qualifies for the play-offs.

Meanwhile, the Cape Town-based club has lodged an application at the High Court, where the matter is currently being heard, to interdict the promotion/ relegation play-offs from commencing at 3 pm today.
