Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson expressed his delight at qualifying for the CAF Confederation Cup after finishing the Absa Premiership campaign in third place.
Dikwena managed to hold onto third spot in the league standings despite their 1-0 loss to champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
Dikwena had an impressive season where they collected 47 points, following 13 wins, nine draws and eight losses in the league.
"We are happy for the fact that we will able to go to Africa to showcase our skill and feel how is going to be like playing in Africa," Johnson told KickOff.
"I think it's a different mentality and a different group of players need to be there. We hope by going there we will add to our philosophy and the way we would like to play going forward.
"I am very excited. It's always been good for me. When I was at Sundowns we went to Africa and almost got to the final stages but lost to Sfaxien I think. When with Platinum Stars, we were the first team to beat Al-Ahly when they still had great players like Aboutrika."
