Cape Town - Platinum Stars head coach, Allan Freese, is pleased with the progress of Dikwena ahead of the 2014/15 PSL season.

Dikwena have been back home in Rustenburg this week following their brief camp in Botswana, which Freese hailed as a great success.

Speaking on the club's website, Frees said that Stars pre-season preparations are progressing well and everything is on track ahead of the season.

Platinum Stars went to Botswana for short pre-season camp which included a friendly against local side Gaborone United. The match was organised as a testimonial for Botswana international Dipsy Selolwane.

The game finished 1-1, with Dikwena winning the friendly after a penalty shootout.

“Everything is going well, we had a good camp in Botswana and it was a good game for us to play against a strong opposition to see where we are,” Freese said.

“The guys benefited from the time away and I think it has put them into the right frame of mind ahead of the new season. They have shown me good commitment and continue to work very hard and that is all we can ask for now.”

Dikwena will play another friendly on Saturday and Freese will want to continue the steady progress.

“Everything is going according to plan and where we believe we should be according to our pre-season schedule. We are definitely on track to be ready for the new season and we are looking forward to it.”

Stars open their season with an MTN8 quarterfinal against Mamelodi Sundowns on August 2.
