We are getting somewhere - Johnson
After witnessing Platinum Stars shrug off Highlands Park, courtesy of Robert Ng’ambi’s solitary goal, coach Cavin Johnson was left positive ahead of the tasks ahead.

“Congratulations to the boys. They are putting in the shifts and you can see that we are getting somewhere slowly,” Johnson tells Platinumstars.com after a hard fought victory at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Sunday afternoon.

“Credit should go to my players for holding the ball well at certain times and trying to score. They were diligent in certain areas. They defended well and they went on to score the goal. There’s no comment in the result section. The results read Stars 1-0 Highlands Park. We are happy to go home with the three points.”
Johnson says it was not a walk in the park against Highlands Park, who are rooted at the bottom of the Absa Premiership table.

“It was probably one of the hardest games we have had this season. The fact that we always grind the results is always a positive. Two weeks ago, we said we need 10 points but we have got four now. We have six to go with three games left. It’s going to be difficult,” said Johnson, whose side is on position 11 with 30 points.

Dikwena will travel to KwaZulu Natal, where they will face Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala stadium this coming Wednesday. Johnson says his men will put up a fight to get something out of the game.

“We are going to Maritzburg United and hopefully we get positive results. It’s going to be difficult like Highlands Park. We are going to their home and they have a good crowd there. They seem to have gelled well with Fadlu Davids. We need to make sure that we close their main players and play our normal game. We are going to go out there and try play as clever as we can in order to get the three points but if we are unable to seal the game then we are happy to come home with one point,” said Johnson.

Kickoff is at 7.30pm.
