Robin Ngalande boost for Baroka ahead of Chippa United contest

Posted: 12 September 2017 Time: 10:15

Baroka have been boosted by the availability of new signing Robin Ngalande for tonight's league clash with Chippa United in Port Elizabeth.

The Malawian attacker is in contention after receiving his working permit, having missed the club's goalless draw with Polokwane City and 1-1 stalemate against Orlando Pirates in the first two matches of the season.

The 24-year-old, who penned a three-year deal with the Premiership side in July, was once on the books of Spanish giants Atletico Madrid. He later joined Bidvest Wits in 2012 but failed to make an impact and was loaned to Ajax Cape Town and Platinum Stars before being released.

"The reason why Robin could not play was because of a work permit," confirms Baroka boss Morgan Mammila.

"Everything has been sorted out and now he is eligible to play."

Bakgaga captain Olaleng Shaku and Matome Kgoetyane have also recovered from knocks, but fullback Punch Masenamela sustained a groin injury during the FIFA international break.

Kgoloko Thobejane's side are 11th on the topflight standings with two points - a point less than sixth-placed Chippa.

Kick-off is at 19h30 at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
