Cape Town - It might
be dark days for Platinum Stars, with their Premiership losses far outweighing
their wins, but coach Allan Freese remains steadfast in his belief that support
from the people of the North West will see them avoid relegation.

Speaking exclusively to Vodacom Football,
Freese pleaded with the people of the 'Platinum Province' to rally behind the
Phokeng-based side, who have lost eight and won only four of their 18 league
matches this term to sit inside the bottom-two.
"This is not a one-man project, and we need everyone
from the North West province to rally behind us as we play all the remainder of
our matches," said the coach.
"We just need to win the next two games and work hard
to climb up the ladder.
“Platinum Stars deserves better, and that is exactly what we
will give the province.”
Dikwena have a number of matches lined up for the remainder
of February and March, with a Nedbank Cup last-32 clash against The Magic FC
first up this Sunday at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace.
Their following encounter is an away league match at
Bloemfontein Celtic, on March 1, with a home tie against Moroka Swallows coming
the next weekend.
Freese concedes that winning their next two league matches
will assist them to be in a more safe position going forward.
