Platinum Stars head coach Cavin Johnson has apologised to Dikwena supporters following their poor performance against Chippa United in the MTN8 quarter-final on Saturday.

Following their 2-0 loss, in which his side failed to record a single shot on target, the former Supersport boss claimed it was not the way the Rustenberg-based outfit want to play football.

"When you make a bad mistake and as a professional footballer you are not able to recover from that positively and you have a team that holds the ball, this is what is going to happen," he said after the game.

"For me, they (Chippa) never really bothered us. But we made a mistake and we weren't able to come out of it.

"Today we were just not good enough," he said when asked what went wrong. "They (Chippa) pressed well, they won the ball and went forward. We pressed, we won the ball, but we went backwards. These are things we will work on and try get better.

"Hopefully, in the future we can win a few more games at home and not be how we were today - this is a bad advert for the type of football we want to play.

"We are going back to the drawing board to fix up our mistakes."
