Botes – who missed the team's first match against Moroka Swallows because of a suspension – was Dikwena's top scorer last season with 9 goals.
There are strong indications that the tall Namibian forward might be thrust into the fray against Celtic as Dikwena go all out to secure their second League win of the season.
Johnson, who is basking in the glory of a 3–1 win over Moroka Swallows in their opening League match, says he is well aware of how dangerous Celtic are when playing at home.
"We know the dangers of Celtic and what they bring to a game, but just as we did against Moroka Swallows, we are concentrating more on getting our own aspects right in the match," Johnson says.
"I was really pleased with how the players carried through our training ground plans against Swallows and if they do that again against Celtic then we stand a good chance."
Stars' previous visit to Celtic was in February last year when an Enocent Mkhabela goal was enough to seal a 1-0 victory.
"It is never easy playing away in the Premiership, but we proved last season that we can pick up points on the road," Johnson adds.
Celtic will be looking to transform their fortunes after a disastrous start to the season.
