JOHANNESBURG – Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson wants Dikwena to end the Absa Premiership campaign on a high when they host Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday night.

Chiefs visit at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace (kick-off 7.30pm) in what would be their last home match of the domestic campaign. Johnson says his men will give their best in order to get positive results.

“It’s our last PSL game at home this season. We are looking to go out there and do well. It’s always good to play Chiefs because you are sure to get a decent crowd at the stadium. We will come out and do our best to put our best foot forward," Johnson told the club's website.

"Hopefully we can play good football. We won’t take Chiefs lightly. They may have lost to Polokwane City but they remain a big team. They are beatable but we have to afford them the respect they deserve.

"I know that my players are going to push hard for a win. Whoever plays against Chiefs always put their best foot forward. We are playing against one of the top teams in the country so we will do our best to make sure we get good results.”

For the Chiefs clash, Johnson is confident of fielding a competitive team despite the absence of a number of key players. Luvo Mpeta, Ndumiso Mabena and Siyabonga Zulu are all unavailable, while Sibusiso Msomi and Mbongeni Mzimela are doubtful.

"Ennocent Mkhabela could play. He has started training so it’s a good sign. We will have a team that will do the job on Wednesday,” said Johnson.

Over the weekend Dikwena drew 1-1 with MC Alger in the opening match of CAF Confederation Cup group stage and Johnson feels his men could have done better on Sunday afternoon.

“I thought we were better than them in the first half. We should have at least scored two or three goals," added Johnson.
