Baroka FC coach Kgoloko Thobejane confident of Premiership win against Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 18 March 2017 Time: 10:15

Baroka FC co-coach Kgoloko Thobejane says the club are confident of maintaining their unbeaten record against Kaizer Chiefs in their Absa Premiership encounter night.

The two sides have already played three times in their history, with the Limpopo club winning the first ever fixture - a famous Nedbank Cup quarter-final victory in 2011 when Baroka were still a third-tier side.

The second time they met was in the F.A.M.E. Charity Cup, a pre-season tournament where Bakgaga won on penalties, while the two teams played to a goalless draw in this season's reverse league fixture

And, Thobejane sees no reason why they can't continue that run against Amakhosi, despite sitting rock bottom of the Premiership standings.

"Chiefs know they find it difficult to win against Baroka," he tells KickOff.com.

"Since Baroka's existence, Chiefs have never won against us. We are not scared of them, we only have stress of scoring goals. I wish we can take last week's 2-0 win against FC Cape Town [in the Nedbank Cup last 32] and turn it into tomorrow's score-line. But the good thing is that the person who scored for us last week is the one who used to miss a lot, that's Richard Matloga.

"Because I know we will create chances tomorrow but the problem will be converting them. We only want three points, we want to make the club management and supporters happy for a change."

The two sides meet tonihght at 20h15 the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
