Cape Town - Platinum Stars head coach Roger de Sa says the club will make some new additions in the January transfer window as they look to move away from relegation trouble.
A 1-0 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs last weekend saw Dikwena remain in peril in the drop zone after 14 games.
De Sa - who took over in September and has recorded two wins, six draws and four losses in 12 outings - says Stars will try to beef up the squad next month.
"We keep going and hopefully January comes, we can strengthen with a few players just to add a bit of depth," he told the SowetanLIVE website.
"To create a bit of competition will be good. I think we need four quality players to add to our squad and make it more competitive.
"Some of these (current) players know that they are going to play week in and week out. We need that motivation as well."
Stars are so short of numbers and quality that striker Bonginkosi Ntuli has been forced to play with a broken arm.
De Sa added: "He broke his arm about two weeks ago. He fell and he's got a fracture, but he's been playing with it and he's been doing alright.
"He scored a goal last week (in the 1-0 win against Polokwane City), so he's going to keep going like that."
