Baloyi keeping the faith

Platinum Stars starlet Charles Baloyi is adamant the club can beat relegation.
The Phokeng-based outfit are propping up the Premiership table with 17 points from 23 games - seven points shy of closest team Ajax Cape Town, who have played an extra match.
SuperSport United are hovering just above the drop zone with 27 points, along with AmaZulu, Chippa United, Polokwane City and Golden Arrows.
Baloyi, 21, has been with Dikwena since the age of 13 and is pleased to have graduated through the ranks and become a regular under coach Roger de Sa.
However, the midfielder is well aware of the severity of Stars' situation.
“I am happy to have gotten a chance to play regularly and realise my dreams. When I wasn’t playing I felt bad but I was giving 100 percent at training. Each and every day I gave my best and now I got a chance. It shows hard work works,” said Baloyi.
“I want to help the team out of the relegation zone. I believe we can still get out of the relegation zone. We just need to continue working hard each and every day. We lack when it comes to scoring. We need to finish our chances. We also have to trust one another. We have to be confident in front of goals. We have to play for the team and not for individuals. That way we will win and come out.”
Baloyi, who hails from Kanana in Rustenburg, is determined to help his team ease the pressure when they visit Bloemfontein Celtic for a league clash this coming Sunday.
“We have to go in one spirit to Celtic. We have to work hard and take our chances. They are also have faults. We have to score goals and get the maximum points,” said Baloyi.
