Mere wants Dikwena to go far  in CAF competition
Platinum Stars captain Vuyo Mere says Dikwena have to aim high in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Mere will lead the South Africans when they play Vipers Sports Club in the second round of the CAF Confederation Cup first leg at ST. Mary\'s Stadium in Kitende, Uganda this afternoon.

\"Our objective is to go as far as we can in this competition. It gives us exposure and we are also building the brand of Platinum Stars. It\'s our duty as players to take this brand forward. We can\'t say we want to get to the semifinals. It will be limiting us. We are looking forward to maybe going all the way to the final and maybe winning it. It\'s possible,\" Mere tells Platinumstars.com.

The match comes at a time where Dikwena are playing regularly. Mere feels the schedule is good for the team\'s momentum. Mere is expecting the Ugandans not to make life easy for Cavin Johnson\'s men on the pitch.

\"We are taking each game as it comes. This thing of playing games back to back is helping us with the momentum. We want to keep going. We have a tough task in CAF. It\'s not going to be easy. We are going to soldier on and make sure we get a win in Uganda. Vipers are playing in Confed Cup because they deserve it. We are going to give them the respect they deserve but on the pitch we are going to work our socks off. We are playing in their backyard so it won\'t be easy,\" said Mere.

Dikwena will head to South Africa on Sunday ahead of Tuesday\'s Nedbank Cup with AmaZulu.

The match in Kampala kicks off at 3pm.
