Platinum Stars continued their winless run in the 2016-17 Absa Premiership with Cavin Johnson's men suffering a 1-0 defeat to Bloemfontein Celtic at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg on Saturday afternoon.

Fiston Abdul Razak scored the only goal of the game as Siwelele registered their first win of the campaign, subsequently stretching Dikwena's run without a win to four matches.

Following a poor start to the season, the Phunya Sele Sele hierarchy decided to promote Morena Ramorebolie to assistant coach with the decision reaping rewards straight away - despite defeat to Kaizer Cheifs in the Sparta Macufe Cup.

Razak opened the scoring in the 44th minute, with the Burundi international finding the back of the net at the ideal time for the visitors.

The hosts applied relentless pressure in the second stanza and despite Celtic midfielder Lantshene Phalane receiving his marching orders in the 89th minute, the visitors successfully held on for all three points.

Victory moves Celtic off the foot off the table and up to 12th on the log standings. Stars, who finished last season in third place, remain ninth.
