Wits, who thrashed Bloemfontein Celtic 3-0 in the quarterfinals last week, head off next to play a tricky Platinum Stars at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in the Northwest Province hoping for a solid foundation before the return leg at home.
“The only way to start collecting silverware is to keep up the momentum we have displayed so far and playing according to coach’s instructions. The spirit in the team is very high and each player is ready to die on the pitch to see that Wits become one of the clubs that end up on the podium,” Sweswe told The Zimbabwean.
The challenge is bigger against Dikwena than it was against Celtic, but Sweswe said he and his teammates were ready and capable of going all the way to the final and eventually winning the lucrative trophy that carries R8 million as the winners’ prize money.
“We just need to guard against complacency that could have developed from our win over Celtic and concentrate on the coming game and nothing will stop us,” said the former Highlanders, Dynamos and Kaizer Chiefs star.
“Our resolve this season is to play each game as if it was a cup final and our new coach Gavin Hunt has brought in a new winning mentality and stability to the team. We all know that he is a successful coach who has won the league and trophies with other several times and we believe that we can win trophies with him charge because he has great tactics. We just need to be consistent throughout the season.”Post published in: Football
