Cape Town - Platinum Stars utility-man Tintswalo Tshabalala urged his team-mates to finish off the job and secure a CAF qualification spot.

Dikwena will fulfill their target of competing in continental football should they finish in their current position of third, but with two games to go and 47 points, Dikwena cannot afford to rest on their laurels as Kaizer Chiefs are trailing close behind in fourth position by just two points.

"These last two games are a must win. We have to do well so that we can play in Africa. Most of the guys wish to play in CAF," Tshabalala said on the club's website.

"We are ready. We had a target at the beginning of the season. Our target was to be in the top five so we have done well.

"It's a game that we must win because it's a home game. We have to work hard and win the game. It's going to be a lovely game for our supporters. They must come in numbers because we are going to win the game.

"I don't think it's going to be a difficult game. I am confident we will get the three points. I am confident because we play as a team. You can look at the way we played against Orlando Pirates and we went to Free State Stars and did the same."

Dikwena will play Bloemfontein Celtic in their penultimate match on Wednesday before taking on Mamelodi Sundowns on May 21.
