Cape Town - Platinum Stars tactician Allan Freese hailed Dikwena supporters following his team‘s victory over Mamelodi Sundowns last Saturday.

Stars defeated ‘Downs 2-1 in their Telkom Knockout quarter-final match played at the Moruleng Stadium.

Togolese international, Dove Wome, gave Pitso Mosimane’s side a deserved lead in the 13th minute before Botswana international, Mogakolodi Ngele, levelled matters from the penalty spot six minutes before the interval.

Mduduzi Nyanda scored the winning goal in the second period.

Freese gave credit to the massive support for his boys.

“I would like to thank the people who came out to support us; it’s a long time since we have had support like that,” he told the club's official website.

“We planned for the game, how we wanted to play; yes we went a goal down.

“But we relaxed and then we started to play how we wanted to play. It was a hard game, unlucky to Sundowns, but we showed great character and played some good football.”

Dikwena are on a current hot streak, having won the MTN8 last month.

It remains to be seen who they will be drawn against in the semi-finals of the R4.25m competition.
