Cape Town - Despite admitting they were not at their best, Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson was content his side managed to beat Orlando Pirates on Monday.

Dikwena bounced back from their 4-1 loss to Chippa United last weekend, with a 2-1 win over the Buccaneers at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

Johnson is happy they got back to winning ways, as they look to cement their place in the top three.

"Last week I said the conditions were not good for my team, but this week we played on our field, and I thought we took our two goals very well," he told SuperSport.

"I thought we defended very well, although we didn't play as we like to play - we didn't move the ball around well-enough.

"We had Rodgers upfront who was always the point of the arrow, but we just didn't use him in the right way, and he also didn't come to the party at times," he said. "In saying that, we defended a lot of the time - Pirates must have had 60-70% possession, but we are happy.

"It's at home, we got the score, and I think we needed the three points a little bit more than Pirates but we happy to go home with three points."
