Rustenburg - Platinum Stars head coach
Allan Freese is delighted to reach his second consecutive Telkom Knockout final
following their 1-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday.
Dikwena continued their dominance over the
big spending Brazilians as they eliminated them from the Ziwa Mo competition at
the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace, courtesy of Eleazar Rodgers’s second half
“I’m very happy because we managed to reach
the final,” said Freese.
“I told my boys before the game that we
only need to win this match to get to the final again.
“And we managed to do it. So now I am not
stressing anymore because we don’t need to go for a draw to find out who we are
going to play in the final.
“Now we know who we are going to play
against and we are looking forward to it.”
The reigning champions will face the
rejuvenated SuperSport United in a quest to retain the title they won last
United booked a place in the final after
humbling the grieving Orlando Pirates 2-0, thanks to Lebogang Manyama and Dove
Wome strikes, at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.
The date and venue for this years’ final is
yet to be confirmed.
