Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Roger de Sa says the struggling Absa Premiership club don't have the finances to buy top talent and must make do with the limited resources they have available.

Dikwena are currently at the bottom of the standings and are winless in 2018.

A 3-0 drubbing in their last league game at the hands of Mamelodi Sundowns has hardly lifted the confidence levels of the struggling side.

Nonetheless, De Sa says he is optimistic of beating the drop while admitting it is going to be a real fight for survival.

The former Orlando Pirates mentor added that Stars simply can't afford to spend big money just as Mamelodi Sundowns did in buying striker Jeremy Brockie from SuperSport United.

"It’s always been a scrap from the day I arrived here really. When I arrived, we had three games‚ no points and we were bottom of the log," De Sa told reporters.

"So, we knew it was always going to be a scrap. We targeted 15 points at the halfway mark which we managed to achieve.

"We are trying to target another 15 in the second round because that’s what it is.

"There’s no other way because we don’t have a big budget to buy a Brockie for a couple of millions. We have to do with what we’ve got."

The outfit from the North-West Province face a tough test at home against the Buccaneers on Saturday.

The action gets underway from 15:30 at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
