Dikwena have now moved up to 12th in the Premiership standings and there is potential for the team to still push for a spot among the top eight before the season ends, although there is a still a considerable amount of work to be done before then.

"The three points will do us well, it puts us up on the log and we are in a better position," said the coach after the victory.

"Haven't we not woken up, I think? I think once we realised where we actually were, I think it was a wake-up call I would say," added Freese.

"I am just happy that we can get points now. You talk about relegation; you talk about the top eight. Can we fight to get into that top eight? That is our goal now because we don't want to go back to where we were. We want to go forward now," said Freese.

The next assignment for Platinum Stars will be a home fixture against Maritzburg United, who just executed an upset against Kaizer Chiefs at the Harry Gwala Stadium in a midweek battle.

Kick-off is at 15:30 on Sunday, March 15.
