Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson says he is open for a campaign in Africa and believes his Dikwena troops have been fantastic to watch this season.

The Phokeng-based side stands a good chance of competing in the Caf Confederation Cup should they maintain their top three position on the log table.

Stars are currently on 47 points on the log with three games remaining following their 2-1 victory over Orlando Pirates last Monday.

“If we do get it, so be it (Confederation Cup spot), but we have basically performed very well this season as a group. For that you have to take your hat off and if we are able to push the other teams and get a third spot in the last three games, so be it and the gods of football are on our side. Whoever wins the league we will shake their hands and give them a standing ovation,” Johnson told the club’s website.

Dikwena last featured in a Caf competition in 2008 under current national Under-23 Coach Owen Da Gama, when they got knocked out by Al Ahly in the third round of the Caf Champions League.
