Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa is expecting a stern test when his side takes on Cavin Johnson's Platinum Stars on Saturday evening.

Johnson's return to the Dikwena helm was confirmed by the North West club this week and De Sa is wary of the effect the coach's arrival will have on the outcome of Saturday's Premiership encounter in Rustenburg.
De Sa is of the opinion that Johnson's appointment will give Stars a big lift as they prepare to face the Urban Warriors.
"I think his reappointment is a good one, it will get them going again, because he did a very good job there before and this is not so long ago," De Sa told Football411.com.
"They will find their feet really quickly, because it's not like somebody who's completely new.
"I do think Freese [Allan] also had similar ways to Cavin, so it's not a big change as far as playing style is concerned.
"They will be highly motivated under the new manager and they will probably have a go at us.
"That's the problem we will have. Playing a team in the relegation zone highly motivated under a new manager.
"But we are well prepared from our side with only one injury concern so it will be a good match."
Stars are currently just two points clear of the relegation zone with 24 points from 24 fixtures, while Ajax occupy fifth place in the Premiership table - six points shy of fourth-placed Bidvest Wits.
