Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson has revealed his dream of one day winning the CAF Champions League with the Premiership club.

Johnson admits it's going to take a while to put a team together that would win him the continental club competition, but believes they are on the right track as they look to finish as high as possible in the league standings.

"It's about building this team to get a star. It's my own personal thing. If you get the star, then you know we have done well. Is it the third spot for the Confederation Cup? If so, then we will push for it and play in it," he said.

Dikwena are currently sitting third in the table following their 2-0 loss to SuperSport United at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Sunday. 

Johnson was frustrated with the way his side handled the match as the defeat ended their six-game winning run at home this season.

"Stuart Baxter's teams always have good set-pieces and they play on the counter attack," he added.

"We planned for that, but when you get caught on the back foot that's under-9 errors. We are upset because we lost a game at home."
