Baroka coach Kgoloko Thobejane targets Bidvest Wits rout after assuming control from Jacob Sakala

Posted: 20 February 2017 Time: 12:53

Kgoloko Thobejane is back to his brash best in the Baroka hotseat, saying his team can easily put four goals past title contenders Bidvest Wits on Wednesday.

Thobejane recently regained control of the topflight strugglers after management suspended new coach Jacob Sakala, his assistant Edward Williams and technical director Mark Harrison.

"I'm more than happy with my return because I want to see goals," Thobejane tells KickOff.com ahead of the trip to Bidvest Stadium.

"It's about time, this is the time. At the moment we are ready and busy preparing for Wits. We are playing Wits and I'm sure we will get three points there."

Thobejane insists bottom-placed Bakgaga do not fear Wits, who are two points behind log leaders Kaizer Chiefs but boast three matches in hand.

"To us they are not a difficult team to play against. We are not afraid of any team. The only team we are scared of is Baroka FC. The kind of boys we have now upfront are not goal shy. We can easily beat Wits 4-0. The last time they came here [Polokwane] we were on top of them the whole game. We failed to convert our chances but not this time. This time I have Maboke Matlakala and Jose Garcia.

"We want them right there at their backyard in front of school children. My aim is to win the Wits match as well as the Cape Town City match, those are the only league matches left that we will play this month."

Baroka are winless in their last 12 games in all competitions, and are propping up the table with 13 points from 17 fixtures.
