Dikwena to play Centre Chiefs
Platinum Stars are to take on Botswana side Mochudi Centre Chiefs in a friendly international on Tuesday.
The North West side’s proximity to Botswana means they have a strong relationship with the country and have two Zebras players in their squad for this season – goalkeeper Kabelo Dambe and midfielder Mogakolodi Ngele.
“So far I am very happy with the way the training has gone since we returned from the festive season-break,” Cavin Johnson told his club’s website. “The players have worked hard and are looking sharp.
“We are looking forward to the game against Centre Chiefs, it will be another good test for us to see where we are with our preparations.”
Dikwena have had a number of high-profile matches this month. They drew 0-0 with 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers Niger, and also lost 4-1 to Algeria, who were using their excellent Royal Bafokeng Campus base as preparations for the continental showpiece.
