Cape Town - Platinum Stars striker Letsie Koapeng says Dikwena will go all out in their last match of the Absa Premiership season.

Though Dikwena are at the bottom of the table with 21 points, Koapeng says there's no need for players to drop their heads when they host Bidvest Wits at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on May 12.

"There's a lot to salvage. There's pride to play for. It will be very good for us to close off the season on a winning note.

"We just need to focus on winning our next game and not really focus on what’s happening off the field. Getting a win in our last game will mean a lot to us. It will be good for the team and everyone’s confidence," said Koapeng.

Koapeng, who joined Dikwena during the January transfer season, recently found his scoring form, netting two in the last two matches. But is cursing the fact that he found his scoring boots so late.

"It’s always a good feeling as a striker to get your name on the score-sheet. I am just grateful to have got the two goals and to be scoring again.

"I wish I could have scored more for the team and helped more in the current situation. Football can be a cruel game and anything can happen, irrespective of how much quality you have in the squad," said Koapeng.

The striker says he and his team-mates will do all in their power to make sure they win their last match.

"It’s going to be a tough one because Wits are also trying to push to make it into the top eight. Everyone will go out there to play for points but I think we need a win more than them.

"If we can work together as a team and unit and realize that this is the last 90 minutes that we have together, we can make it count," he said.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
