Platinum Stars captain Vuyo Mere admits the team is worried about their situation but insists their performances have spiked with the arrival of coach Roger de Sa.
Stars are propping up the Premiership standings with a point from five games, while there is talk the Rustenburg-based outfit could be sold.
However, Mere is confident Dikwena will turn the corner under De Sa, who replaced Englishman Peter Butler in the hotseat barely two matches into the campaign
"Yeah, it's a worrying factor for all of us," Mere tells KickOff.com.
"We still believe we can make our way out of this situation, there is major improvement in our performances since coach De Sa took over. It's a matter of time till we turn the corner.
"Chopping and changing of personnel has played a major role but it's not an excuse, it happens everywhere."
De Sa's charges, who lost 1-0 to Golden Arrows in their previous test, next visit AmaZulu at King Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday night (20h15). Usuthu have their heads up following a 3-0 thumping of struggling champions Bidvest Wits at the same venue in midweek.
"Another difficult one, all of the games are very crucial to us," says Mere. "We gonna go there with a positive mind bearing in mind that we have a point already before even playing; it's up to us to get another two. But we will make sure we won't come back empty handed."
