Platinum Stars will be looking to reclaim another big win as they entertain Mamelodi Sundowns in the Telkom Knockout Cup quarterfinal clash on Saturday night.
Dikwena upset Pirates to win the MTN 8 over two weeks ago, and beating Sundowns could well put them in pole position to win the Telkom Knockout Cup.
Sundowns on the other hand, are banking on their current form to at least seal victory against their hoodoo team.
The Brazilians have had it tough against the Rustenburg-based side, but their unbeaten run so far this season could be to their advantage.
Robert Ng'ambi is expected to continue his terrific form for Dikwena, and he, together with Siphelele Mthembu, will certainly be a threat to the Downs defence.
Mosimane has been rotating his defence in the recent games and that could backfire against the deadly Platinum Stars side.
However, the Chloorkop-based outfit has Khama Billiat and Bongani Zungu to carry the team all the way, with Cuthbert Malajila upfront.
