Baroka right wing Rhulani Sidumo says outgoing Telkom Knockout champions Cape Town City did not provide much resistance in yesterday's last-16 clash.
A solitary goal by Zimbabwean Talent Chawapihwa was enough for the Limpopo side to see off the Citizens at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
"We had no pressure. We played our normal game without any pressure," Sidumo tells KickOff.com.
"Coach [Kgoloko Thobejane] told us to work the same way we do at training. We are very happy to reach the quarterfinals. We won the game by taking our chances because if you don't make use of your chances you'll end up losing the game.
"Cape Town City can play, but it's not a team that has got that much competition in them. We were supposed to beat them with about five goals. As you've seen we let go of many chances."
Sidumo is confident Bakgaga, who top the Premiership standings after nine games, will avenge their recent league defeat to Bidvest Wits when they meet the Students in the next round of the TKO.
"We will find ourselves in the semi-finals because we've just played them last week. So we lost to them by only one goal to zero. So it was because of our mistake. So we would like to go there and correct our mistake. But our focus is on the league. Our focus is to compete in the league. So a cup we will play... and we will not take it lightly, we won't just give away the game."
Meanwhile, the former Acornbush United player is satisfied to be getting game-time of late.
"My progress is okay, no pressure. I just listen to the coach what he says and he doesn't give me that much pressure. He allows me to play my normal game, the same way I play at training. So I don't think that can give me a problem.
"The difference is that the Motsepe League is tougher than the PSL. I cannot compare the two actually because the two divisions are not the same. What I've learned in the PSL is how to move because in the Motsepe League they didn't give space to move, it's more competitive."
