Cape Town - Platinum Stars captain Vuyo Mere has called on his team-mates to finish the run-in to the Absa Premiership strongly.

Third placed Dikwena have recently experienced a dip in form with a three-match winless run.

In the last month, the Phokeng outfit were knocked out of the Nedbank Cup and beaten 2-0 by SuperSport United in their last league game.

"We are not done yet. I think as players we are complacent. We can't be relaxing now since we are number three," Mere said on the club's website.

"We have got an opportunity to finish higher. If we can just realise that as players we can achieve more.

"We are thinking that now that we are number three and we have beaten teams at the top, we are thinking things are going to happen automatically. We are going to have to work extra hard to achieve results.

"According to our standards, we are a winning team. We have to up our socks. Everybody has to lift their game. We work hard at training. We just have to take that from training and apply it in a game.

"There are still enough games to improve. If we win one game, it will be a confidence booster."
