Cape Town - Platinum Stars and Orlando Pirates drew 0-0 in an Absa Premiership game which was played at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg on Wednesday night.
As a result, Bucs remain 10th on the league table, while Dikwena move up to 12th on the standings.
Dikwena goalkeeper Mbongeni Mzimela was the busier of the two shot-stoppers in the opening stages of the bottom half of the table encounter. The 31-year-old gathered Luvuyo Memela's dangerous cross and he also saved Oupa Manyisa's long range shot, before the 20-minute mark.
Bucs keeper Brighton Mhlongo was called into action in the 37th minute, but he saved Ndumiso Mabena's effort to ensure that the first-half ended goalless.
The two teams continued to struggle to find the back of the net in the second-half as they gave away possession in the final third.
Stars striker Bongi Ntuli tried to beat goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane from range in the 62nd minute, but the goal-minder was equal to the task.
Henrico Botes, the Stars striker, was introduced in the 92nd minute as the home side searched for a late winning goal.
However, Pirates stood firm at the back and ultimately, the match ended in a goalless draw.
