Cape Town - Platinum Stars assistant coach Milton Dlamini has backed embattled club to fight to the end in their bid to avoid relegation this season.

Dlamini was in charge of Dikwena during Sunday's 1-0 loss to Bloemfontein Celtic in the absence of suspended coach Roger De Sa, and he believes that anything is still possible in the remaining six matches.

The Rustenburg outfit are at the bottom of the Premiership table with just 17 points from 24 games.

"Yes, it was frustrating on the weekend because we had chances in the first half and never took them," Dlamini said.

"You know this game, you do not take your chances and it comes back to bite you.

"We were not at our best against Celtic and I think the position on the standings took a toll on our players.

"Sometimes you want too much and the application becomes a problem."

Dlamini insists Stars will continue to soldier on until surviving is mathematically impossible for them and said they need to be more clinical in front of goal, having squandered good goalscoring chances against Celtic.

"We will go on until it is mathematical not viable, but for now we are still in the Premier league," he added.
