Cape Town - Platinum Stars captain Vuyo Mere expects his team-mates to have better impetus against Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday.

Dikwena will be out to snap their four-match winless run in all competitions when their Premiership journey resumes at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

With one win, two draws and one loss, Dikwena are in ninth place, while Siwelele are winless at the bottom of the table with two losses and a draw.

"We have to bring our A game on the day," Mere told KickOff website. "We hope it has taken as much energy out of them so that when we play them they are not as fresh as we are.

"Celtic is always a tricky team. They have got a good coach with a quality side. I have that thing that when I play Celtic I always want to do well against them.

"It's my home team. They are coming to our home. We expect nothing but three points... We can't take anyone for granted this season."

Kick-off at Royal Bafokeng Stadium is set for 15:30.
