Segolela, who moved to the Rustenburg-based side during the January transfer window, has been enjoying more game-time since the arrival of Johnson. 

He tells he is happy with the progress he is making under the new coach and believes Dikwena will be a force to be reckoned with next season.

"When he [Johnson] arrived at the club, he told me that he rates me as a very good player and this boosted my confidence levels," Segolela says.

"I think I am well suited to the coach's technical approach. I enjoy running hard at opponents and I am happy that the coach gives us the freedom to express ourselves on the football pitch.

"We have been doing quite well since he took over and the idea is to continue collecting points. There is still room for improvement. We must collect as many points as we can in our remaining matches to make sure that we are not relegated.

"As far as my own performance is concerned, I am happy that I am helping the team to avoid the chop. Next season the priority will be to win as many cups as we can.

"One of the reasons why I joined Platinum Stars is because the club is serious when it comes to challenging for silverware.

"I would like to be part of that success, part of a team that can dominate local football," adds Segolela.
