Ng’ambi targets 'huge game' v City

After back-to-back league defeats, Platinum Stars are looking nervously over their shoulders again as they prepare to travel to Polokwane City in the Absa Premiership on Wednesday night.

Dikwena are just four points above the relegation play-off position, albeit with two games in hand, and midfielder Robert Ng’ambi knows that a couple more quick defeats could see them sucked back in to the relegation mix.

The side claimed a first ever place in the African Confederation Cup pool stages with a penalty shoot-out win over Ivory Coast team Tanda, but it is now league points they are after.

"The weekend result gave our confidence a boost,” Ng’ambi told his club’s website.

“We wanted a win after we lost two games against BidVest Wits and Cape Town City. This is a win that gives a lot of confidence going forward.

“I think the morale is high now. We just need to stay focused and make sure that we give everything against Polokwane City. It's a huge game. It's a must win for us to get that chance to get into the top eight.

“We have to make sure that every game that comes we get the positive results. We have a cup and a league game coming up. We have to switch focus to the league now.”


Stars are away at Lamontville Golden Arrows in the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals on Saturday.
