Fresh from securing their second league win, Dikwena will now be eyeing scalp Amakhosi’s scalp on Saturday

Platinum Stars coach Roger De Sa though relates to the pressure his counterpart Steve Komphela is facing at Kaizer Chiefs, but believes not too much emphasis should be directed at him.

“The coach will always be the fall guy. We put too much emphasis on one man. It’s nobody’s divine right to win games every time,” De Sa told Sowetan.

They welcome the Amakhosi to the Royal Bafokeng Stadium, with a spring in their step following their midweek win over Polokwane City that moved them out of the relegation zone.

The visitors coming off a defeat at Chippa United, it should come as a perfect time for Dikwena to climb further up the standings and heap more misery on the Komphela-led Glamour Boys with another win.

“I think Chiefs will bring the game to us but that also means they will open up and give us a chance to go at them,” De Sa said.

They do expect a hungry team coming at them with all their might, as it’s never a good time nor bad time facing a team such as the Amakhosi.

“I expect a hungry team desperate to bounce back. There is never a best time to face Chiefs, whether they are from a win or loss, they are still a dangerous team. Their form is not as bad as people make it out to be.

“Two wins and they will be back at the top of the table,” De Sa said.

Stars have in the last two campaigns got the better of the Amakhosi at home, with 2-0 wins, and have actually not lost to them in all competitions since the 2014/15 season.
