Johnson: Platinum Stars need to bounce back

Goal spoke with Dikwena coach Cavin Johnson as the race for the second finish comes to an end on Saturday afternoon
Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson has told Goal that their game against SuperSport United will be like a cup final.

Dikwena need all the three points against Matsatsantsa to secure second place on the PSL log, as they lead Pirates by a single point.

"It will be a tough game for both teams. They still want to finish in the top four and we want to make the second spot ours," Johnson told Goal.

"All in all, this is like a cup final for us. Both teams have an equal chance of winning the match, but we want it more," he said.

Stars have been in tremendous form this season, and Johnson believes that his team deserved silverware looking at how well they have performed all season.

"It's in everyone lips that we deserved to get something out of this season, but this is football and we have to accept," said Johnson.

"We could only be happy that we had a productive season. We surely will get something next season," he added.

Johnson is in line for the PSL's coach of the season award, but he is faced with a tough competition from Chiefs' Stuart Baxter and Celtic's Clinton Larsen.
