Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson admits his players took the 1-0 defeat to Baroka FC in the Premiership on Saturday "very badly".

Dikwena were disappointing at home on the day against the league rookies at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

Johnson is eyeing an improved showing in their next encounter against Orlando Pirates on Tuesday.

"They took it very badly, all of them. It's a good sign for me so I can work on something," Johnson told KickOff.

"We play Pirates on Tuesday night. It's a very difficult game. We have got to make sure that we recover well. We have to try our best to put a better performance against Pirates.

"At the moment they are playing very well. Their game got postponed at the weekend so they would be a fresher than us. We are going to have to deal with that.

"We just have to grind in every game that we play. You know how it is against Pirates, they always try to redeem themselves against the big teams and if they are able to do that, that's good.

"It's going to be a tight one. Pirates are on top at the moment and they want to stay at the top. We need to make sure that we try get the points as well."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
