Platinum Stars defender Ayanda Gcaba says the team are determined to do everything in their power to retain their Absa Premiership status this season.
Dikwena currently sit rock bottom of the standings after managing just three wins from their 21 topflight matches this term.
Gcaba, though, says coach Roger de Sa's side are not ready to throw in the towel just yet and will be fighting tooth and nail to haul themselves out of the relegation zone in their final nine league matches.
“Even though we are in a difficult position, we will come through as long as we keep on fighting," he said ahead of Friday's clash against Martizburg United.
"It’s been positive. The confidence is back and the only thing left is to finish things off and get the three points and move forward.
“The only thing that is missing is for us to finish our chances. We do get opportunities but we don’t bury them.
"Other teams get that one opportunity and they bury. They bury chances and win their games. We also have to do that.
"We are solid at the back and the midfielders are working too. The strikers are also working but it’s just that we need to work a bit harder for us to clinch every game that we play in.”
