Gerald Phiri Jr targets Platinum Stars resurgence against Golden Arrows in Nedbank Cup quarterfinal

Dikwena will visit Abafana Bes'thende in an all-top flight affair at the Princess Magogo Stadium this afternoon, with a semi-final spot in the domestic FA cup up for grabs.

The Rustenburg-based outfit last weekend secured their first ever qualification to the CAF Confederation Cup group stage in their maiden continental campaign, but have experienced contrasting fortunes in the league, where they've lost their last three consecutive games.

Phiri, who has been a key figure for Stars in their last nine league outings, hopes advancing in the domestic cup can inspire a turnover in the Absa Premiership.

"We have grinded results before. We are going for a win against Arrows. We expect to reach the final but it depends on luck. All we hope for is to get to the final,” he concluded.

Kick-off of this afternoon's clash is set for 15h00.
