Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson has made no secret his intense desire to see Dikwena win in front of home fans.
So far this season Dikwena have won just once in the Absa Premiership at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace. The other time Dikwena won at home was during the CAF Confederation Cup fixture. Johnson tells Platinumstars.com that his charges will be going for a win when they host Chippa United at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace in Rustenburg this coming Friday.
“The desire to win at home is bigger than anything at the moment. To register a nice win at home is what we are going to put all our energies on. The fact that we are playing at home, I am sure that the players will put a better effort against Chippa,” said Johnson.
In the last two matches, Dikwena won. Johnson’s men will be in high spirits after beating Bloemfontein Celtic 3-0 in the last match. Johnson wants his men to keep the momentum when they clash with Dan Malesela’s charges.
“If we can get the next win, we will be happy because that keeps the momentum and betters our position on the log. We are going to go for three points. We will play as hard as we can to get the win. Chippa likes to put it on the ground and come at you. We like to do that as well,” said Johnson.
“Chippa held the African Champions to a draw on Wednesday. That means they are a good team. We are going to do work on them. We are confident because we come from a good win from Bloemfontein. We play good football. We are going to try and keep up on the same vein.”
Johnson revealed that he will make changes in midfield since captain Vuyo Mere is out due to suspension.
“We have our captain suspended because he has four yellow cards so we are going to reshuffle a little bit in midfield,” said Johnson.
Kickoff is at 8pm.
