Dikwena are currently third from the bottom with 16 points off 17 matches.

The Rustenburg-based side will be away to Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday afternoon, a match Jackson believes they can win.

“We deserve better… This is not our position. We deserve to be in the top eight,” said Jackson on Thursday.

“Everyone is fighting to be in the top eight. We have very good players. Our players are strong, motivated and looking forward to the next game.

“We just need to get our minds focused, work hard and go to Bloemfontein and play football,” added the former Orlando Pirates defender.
