Platinum Stars defender Siyabonga Zulu says his side will go on the attack when they take on Uniao de Songo in their Caf Confederation Cup second leg on Saturday.

Dikwena are heading into the second leg with a 1-0 lead over Uniao after Robert Ng’ambi scored the only goal in the first leg.

The 23-year-old insists that his side will go to the match with an attacking mindset in the hopes of booking their place in the next round of the competition.

‘We have to fight because we are playing outside the country. We know what to expect. We have to work hard,’ Zulu told the Platinum Stars website.

‘Our mission is to attack. We don’t want to defend because if we are defensive, we will lose. We have to attack and continue the way we have been playing.’

Dikwena captain Vuyo Mere echoed his teammate’s sentiments by insisting his side are expecting the home side to be more offensive in the second leg with the advantage of home ground.

‘They won’t be sitting back like they did in Rustenburg. They will come with guns blazing. We are expecting a tough game,” said Mere.

‘They are a good side. For them to compete in Confed Cup says a lot about them. When we played them at home, they showed signs of being a good team.

‘They parked the bus the whole game, but it’s going to be a different ball game here in Mozambique. They will be looking to get results. We are here to win the game.’

Platinum Stars will next take on Uniao de Songo in their Caf Confederation Cup second leg on Saturday.

The match at the Zimpeto Stadium kicks off at 18:00.
