The Rustenburg giants have had a slow build up to the 2014/15 season and, after 18 matches into the season, they have managed to pick up just 18 points, leaving them facing a possible chop from the top flight.
The former Orlando Pirates and Bloemfontein Celtics player is confident that Stars will survive the drop.
He said: "Honestly speaking we are not comfortable with the position the team is in at this moment, this past weekend I spoke to a senior player Thabiso Semenya, we understood that we cannot [allow] the team to be in this space and what needs to be implemented.
"We can never say it's the coach or management's job to take the team out of this danger zone, as senior players and seasonal campaigners we want to see a change and we are working on it as players only.
“There is light and we can't give up now since we have plenty matches to play."
Platinum Stars are also set to play an unknown side The Magic FC, a South African Football Association second division side, in the Nedbank Cup.
Regarding those upcoming opponents, Malokase added: "They are an unknown side but we can't take them for granted, we aware that last week they were playing somewhere in Cape Town so [Platinum Stars coach] Allan Freeze went to watch them play just to get an idea of what to expect.
"As a team playing in the Premier division there's also pride at stake and do not want to be humiliated by a lower level team."
