Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson is refusing to get carried away by his side's early season form, despite their unbeaten start to the campaign.

Stars currently top the Premiership standings, level on points with Black Aces, with four wins and two draws from their first six games of the season.

But despite the good start, Johnson is keen to curb expectations and believes it is too early to start talking about Dikwena's title chances.

"To be top of the log at this time of the season is a bonus for us, but we know that a lot people will start talking and eyebrows will be raised," he was quoted as saying by the Sowetan.

"As a club, where we are now is a culmination of a very good pre-season and having a good board of directors.

"It is definitely too early to talk about whether we have the necessary ingredients to go all the way. I would be putting the cart before the horse if I spoke about that.

"What I can speak about is building the brand, the technique and a good crop of young players, like when I played my 15-year-old [Kobamelo Kodisang] against Golden Arrows.

"Those are the things I thrive on and are equivalent to winning the league."
