Mzimela confident ahead of Maritzburg clash
Platinum Stars goalkeeper Mbongeni Mzimela says Dikwena are bracing themselves for tough time in the remaining matches.

Mzimela and his teammates will take on Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala Stadium this coming Wednesday. Mzimela tells that he and his teammates will go all out to fight for maximum points against Fadlu Davids’ side.

“The game will be tight. At this time of the season everyone is fighting for points. Others are fighting for top eight, relegation, championship and some are fighting for contracts. There are a lot of things making the game to be difficult. We have to keep shape at the back and use the chances that we get,” said Mzimela.

Mzimela says Cavin Johnson’s men, who are on position 11 with 30 points, will be oozing confidence following their win over Highlands Park at the weekend. Robert Ng’ambi’s goal was responsible for garnering all the points for Dikwena. Mzimela is expecting positive results against Maritzburg United.

“We are going to the game confident because we got three points against Highlands Park. It’s going to be a tough game but we will compete. We are in the right space in terms of confidence. It was important game for us to win because we needed maximum points so that we can move away from relegation. We played well keeping the shape at the back and keeping a clean sheet. It’s good that we won,” said Mzimela.

Mzimela has also acknowledged the role that Dikwena supporters have played during trying times.

“We have to thank our supporters for coming to rally behind us. We were surprised to see some of our supporters in Cape Town. Their support means a lot to us. We are grateful. We just have to hold on for the few matches and things will be better,” said Mzimela.

Kickoff is at 7:30pm
