Dikwena's form has improved markedly since Cavin Johnson rejoined as the club's coach at the end of March, but are still mathematically not yet safe from the drop.
The Rustenburg outfit is 13th in the standings, four points above the relegation places with two games of the season remaining and a win on Wednesday will secure their place in the league next term.
The club has only lost one of the six games they have played during Johnson's second stint in charge of the club, but that only tells half the story because they have also only won once in his first game in charge.
There is no doubt the Platinum Stars are playing better football under Johnson and now they need the results to back up those performances.
Johnson took aim at his defence after Sunday's 2-1 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns and he'll want a more solid performance from them on Wednesday.
Polokwane City are just two points outside of a place in the lucrative top eight of the division and will be targeting a win to give them the best chance of qualifying for next season's MTN8.
Thobani Mncwango scored a late equaliser in the midweek 2-2 draw with Mpumalanga Black Aces to keep them within touching distance of the top half of the Premiership.
Coach Kosta Papic will want to use that momentum to propel them into a winning position this time around.
Papic has no fresh injury or suspension concerns to worry about, but Cole Alexander and Tshepo Tema are both one yellow card away from a ban.
Johnson will have to make do without Rofhiwa Tshikovhi and Solomon Mathe, who are both suspended for the match, but otherwise has a fully-fit squad to choose from.
Kick-off is at 19:30 on Wednesday, May 6.
