Rustenburg - Following their midweek stalemate against log leaders Kaizer Chiefs, Platinum Stars goalkeeper Kabelo Dambe was pleased to come out of the tough clash with a point against the high flying Amakhosi outfit.

Dikwena and Amakhosi shared the spoils in an exciting 2-all draw at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Tuesday night, which was their fifth meeting of the season.

Stars found the back of the net through Eleazar Rodgers and Robert Ng’ambi, while Tefu Mashamaite and Siphiwe Tshabalala replied for the Phefeni Glamour Boys.

The Botswana international hinted that Dikwena should have walked away with the three points but their erratic defence let them down.

“We did our best as a team,” said Dambe.

“Coming out of the clash against Chiefs with a point meant something for us.

“Every time when you play against Chiefs, you have to expect them to come at you.

“I did my best to save my team to keep them in the game.

“I managed to make about three to four saves in the first half and I also did well in the second half.

“The first goal we conceded, somehow I made a mistake and the second goal it was our defence who made a mistake.

“But a point away from home was good for us.”

Dikwena are now out of the relegation zone and currently occupy 12th spot on the log standings.

Their next game will be against Bidvest Wits at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
