Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson is confident his side has the ability to raise their game when they take on Absa Premiership champions Kaizer Chiefs.

The sides lock horns in the Telkom Knockout first round at the Moruleng Stadium on Saturday with Dikwena flying high at the top of the PSL table, but Johnson knows that form means nothing in a cup tie.

"For any team, irrespective of league form, it is always a motivation to play Kaizer Chiefs because of their status in South African football," Johnson told Soccer Laduma.

"It is going to be a tough game because Chiefs are always pushing to win trophies, but we should be confident because we've won two major trophies in recent times.

"But we're not cup specialists. What I can do is control my players from feeling over-motivated.

"We are playing at home and it should be a huge advantage but if we are honest, every game against Chiefs is an away one."

Amakhosi will be out for revenge having been knockout out of the same competition by Platinum Stars last season.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
