Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Roger de Sa is looking to add a few more players to his squad during the international break.

Dikwena, who sacked previous coach Peter Butler after a couple of games before enlisting De Sa, are bottom of the table with only two points from seven games.

With the transfer window closed, the former Ajax, Wits and Orland Pirates boss would have to sign either a free agent or a player from the lower divisions.

De Sa plans to use the international break as an opportunity to turn the North West club's fortunes around.

"Now it's time to put work in certain areas that we need to improve on. And hopefully we will improve.

"I am looking at two PSL friendlies. I want to give guys like Vieira (Lehlogonolo Masalesa) a run to get match fitness and get two or more combinations.

"Hopefully in the next weeks we can work on a lot of things. I want to bring one or two players to create competitiveness as well.

"Hopefully (Zambian striker, Brian) Mwila comes back from injury. Vieira is another player that will be in contention. We gave him 15 minutes against Sundowns," he said.

Stars' next outing is against Pirates at the Orlando Stadium on October 18.
