Cape Town - Platinum
Stars coach Roger De Sa admits remaining hopeful that his team could
possibly escape the relegation axe if Ajax Cape Town are docked points.
The Urban Warriors are still awaiting a final ruling on what has been
an ongoing saga, after it was found that Tendai Ndoro had technically
been ineligible to play for them as the striker had already represented
two clubs this season.
The Mother City outfit believe they have a case in that one of the
teams Ndoro played for, Al Faisaly, go according to a different
footballing calendar to that of the PSL.
As things stand, Dikwena are on 21 points, seven behind second-from-bottom Ajax, who beat De Sa's side 1-0 in January.
It could get even worse for Muhsin Ertugral's men if they are also
deducted points for wins over SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates, as
well as a draw against Polokwane City.
"The Ajax situation is in our face. Anything can happen but we have
to focus on our remaining games," the former Ajax coach was quoted by the Sowetan.
"I did not write the rules and I do not know how it's going to work
out. We cannot hold our breath and try to make any expectations out of
"Every game for us is an opportunity to win. Our objective is to win
every game we play. We have three games to play and the approach is the
same, we will try to win all of them."
Dikwena next face Amazulu in a league encounter on Wednesday April 25 after the resumption of the league due to the Nedbank Cup semi-finals taking place this weekend.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
