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.
