Mthembu: It's All About Three Points

Platinum Stars striker, Siphelele Mthembu, is hoping that things start to fall in place for Dikwena when they take on Bloemfontein Celtic today.

The 26-year-old has already scored seven goals for Dikwena this season, three of them coming on the way to his side claiming victory in the MTN8 tournament earlier this season.

Now, as Allan Freese’s side look to finish as high up on the PSL log as possible, they’re targeting three points against an in-form Siwelele this afternoon.

Speaking to Dikwena’s official website, Mthembu said,  “This game it is all about the three points and keeping ourselves in the top eight. We are not expecting to lose, we are not going to go there and play for the draw, we want to win the game and come back with the points.

“We want to go there and give it our all and not come home and say, ‘oh, we should have done this or that’. We will not go there to defend, we will be positive and try and win the game.”

“They (Celtic) have got a good coach and are starting to understand each other well. They also want to be in the top eight as well of course, so that is going to make it even tougher as both teams have something to play for. It’s going to be war.

“We have been a bit unlucky, we have created chances to score but not everything falls into place for you every time you play. We have been playing well enough though and our confidence remains high."

The game between Stars and Celtic takes place at Free State Stadium at 15h00 as Dikwena look to bounce back from their recent 1-0 defeat to Moroka Swallows.
