Cape Town - Platinum Stars development team head coach Keleabetswe Diale has tipped South Africa youth international play-maker Kobamelo Kodisang for stardom.

Kodisang rose to prominence after making his senior first-team debut for Dikwena as a 15-year-old last season and has featured sporadically since then, under manager Cavin Johnson.

However, the play-maker has been a regular for Amajita, South Africa national U20 side and Platinum Stars' Multi Choice Diski team - where he scored a brace on Sunday, in the 4-1 thumping of Polokwane City.

Diale admits that Kodisang possesses a unique talent, but urged that expectations around his performances needs to be managed as he continues to develop in the South African top-flight.

"He is yet to be free and to be himself," he told the club's website. "I am not blaming anyone for that. If you play with your peers and they know you are a brilliant player, they will always tell you to go on.

"They know you are capable of exploiting spaces, creating and scoring goals. I believe that he is going to get the scoring boots on and we will be raving about him.

"Even in the PSL, he is not doing badly because he has got a couple of assists. Against Polokwane City, he took on the responsibility. I believe the confidence is there. He can now start scoring. He would fight to put one in for the first team."

Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson will be hoping that Kodisang will play a prominent role for his side when the league resumes on February 8 with a fixture against Orlando Pirates at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

Kick off is at 19:30.
