Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson revealed that a tactical shift yielded their 3-1 victory over SuperSport United.

In a dominant display away from home, Dikwena outplayed Matsatsantsa at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Second-half goals from Robert Ng'ambi, Bongi Ntuli and Sibusiso Msomi secured the points, while Jeremy Brockie scored the consolation for United.

Stars capitalized on poor defending from United - handing them their third consecutive loss in the Premiership.

The unbeaten Dikwena are now among the front runners in the league with four wins and two draws.

"We changed our formation a bit today by playing with two strikers and we got the business done," Johnson said after the game.

"I thought we played well and had control of the game. It was about how much we want it! There is happiness in the team and the boys want to play football.

"Title talks are not in our heads for now. In the past we have taken one step forward and two steps backward and we need to build the character of the team and the players going into the game.

"For now we would like to do as best as we can to build a brand of football."
