Platinum Stars assistant coach Alan Clark says Dikwena will give their best in order to advance to the next stage of the Nedbank Cup.
Dikwena were drawn away to Golden Arrows during the Nedbank Cup quarterfinal live draw on Monday night. Clark says Cavin Johnson's men will give their all to continue in the competition.
We would have loved a home fixture but we have done well against Arrows this season. They are a very good attacking team. We know what to expect from them. We are going to be at our best in order to progress to the next round of the competition. We are happy with the draw. We are happy to have our name in the hat. Hopefully we have our name in the hat for the next round. We are both attacking teams and it normally makes for an attractive football match. One thing you are guaranteed of is scoring opportunities. Hopefully the football gods smile at us and we go through,” says Clark.
The PSL is yet to reveal the dates and times for the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals. However Dikwena have a date with Cape Town City FC, whom they host at Moruleng Stadium in an Absa Premiership encounter this coming Thursday. The last time the two sides met, Dikwena beat Cape Town City 4-1 away. Clark says Dikwena want to hit the same vein of form this time around.
“It’s a big game for us. Cape Town City are up there. They are competing for a new brand. They have done well for themselves. We were very good the last time we played against them. It’s important for us to find that form again. This year we have been very good. Our performances have been good. If we can bring that level of performance against Cape Town City, I can’t see why we can’t be on the side of a good result,” said Clark.
Kickoff is at 6pm.
