Platinum Stars coach Roger De Sa wants his men to go for a kill in their last match before the Christmas break.

De Sa’s side will play their last match of the year against Bidvest Wits at the Bidvest Stadium this coming Saturday. Like Dikwena, Wits have been in unfamiliar territory. Wits are at the bottom while Dikwena are one place above them on the Absa Premiership table with 11 and 12 points respectively. De Sa is expecting a tough clash.

“It’s an important game for both teams I think. We mustn’t lose. We want to finish on a high before we go on a break. Obviously if we get three points it will be great. We have got to try and do as best as we can so we can finish on high. Wits are trying to fight to get out of where they are. We have got to expect a fighting Wits. We have to be up for it,” said De Sa.

Dikwena have to do better than they did against Kaizer Chiefs, where they lost 1-0 at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Saturday evening. Once again Dikwena were punished for not taking their chances throughout the game.

“For about 30 minutes we looked better. We got behind them but we looked better for that period. Once Ntuli’s legs went, they got stronger and stronger. Once they brought on the subs, there was always a danger that they would turn around a bit,” said De Sa.

“Seven games without a loss was a pretty good record. We want to go another seven days without a loss. If things are going to happen, you have to take it on the chin and fight back. We are going to fight back. We want to finish on a high. Hopefully we can go into transfer market and bring in two or three that are going to add to the squad.”

Kickoff is at 8.15
