Cape Town - Platinum Stars captain Vuyo Mere wants his team to rediscover the form that led them to the Telkom Knockout title three seasons ago.

Dikwena will commence their cup campaign away after being drawn against rookies Baroka FC in the first round.

Mere wants to taste the cup glory once again but warned that they will have to get through the first tricky hurdle against the Premiership newcomers.

"It's our objective as Dikwena to win every trophy that is on offer," he said on the club's Facebook.

"This one too is no exception. We are going to do our best to go further and finish as high as possible in the competition. Our aim is to win it as we have tasted glory before.

"We have won it before and we want to give the youngsters, who haven't won anything, a chance to win this and make them feel that it's important to win trophies.

"It puts pressure on us as senior players to let the younger ones to also taste the glory.

"I am quite happy with the draw. I am not saying because we are playing Baroka that we are going to undermine them.

"What makes me happy is that we have played them before and we lost to them. We feel like they owe us something.

"It's going to be a cup competition which makes it more difficult. We have to be more cautious with less mistakes."
