Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson has shouldered responsibility following a series of undesirable results.
Dikwena’s 3-1 loss to Free State Stars on Wednesday night was the club’s third consecutive defeat. Johnson tells Platinumstars.com that he takes all the responsibly and that his focus is on turning things around in the favour of the club.
“We are sad like everybody else. We are not happy. We need to fix a few things. I take all the responsibility. That’s all. I take all the responsibility for the loss and I try to feed my players with the positives to go forward,” said Johnson after the Stars loss.
Johnson says the club’s dip in form is just a phase that Dikwena are going through and that it’s just a matter of time before things change for good.
“Please be patient with us. Understand the phase we are going through. All the big teams in the world have gone through that and somewhere along the lines we have to turn the corner. We are not a team that just goes down. We will turn the corner. We have been there before and we came out of it better. We know what is like and we will come out. Just be patient,” said Johnson.
Johnson will be hoping that the turnaround starts when Dikwena host Polokwane City at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace this coming Saturday afternoon.
“We are creating chances but the problem is that they cannot go into the net. When those chances go into the net and hopefully they can go sooner than we think, it will turn the game around. Polokwane City play excellent football. They are a different team under new coach. They seem to be playing better. They are a good travelling team. We are expecting a very hard game against them. We are going to put up our hand to win the game as well. Come Saturday and hopefully we can win at home,” said Johnson.
Kickoff is at 3.30pm
