Baroka: Bring on Pirates/Downs

Nedbank Cup

Baroka bolstered their reputation for upsetting topflight opposition with a 3-2 win over Chippa United in East London on Sunday.

The NFD leaders, who will discover their next opponents in the event on Thursday, have accounted for the scalps of Kaizer Chiefs and Moroka Swallows (when the Birds were in the PSL) in recent seasons.

And Thobejane insists his side are ready for whatever challenge lies ahead.

"You can bring anyone. You can bring Pirates or Sundowns," says Thobejane.

"We don't fear or are afraid of anyone."

Thobejane, though, says his club's priority this campaign is to secure promotion to the Absa Premiership

He adds: "Our mission is still the same... going straight to the PSL next season."
