Thobejane: Half loaf is better than nothing

Premiership

Baroka denied the champions top spot in the Premiership standings by converting a last-gasp penalty in a 2-2 draw last night.

Bakgaga, however, remain second-from-bottom on the log.

“Half loaf is better than nothing. We can't say we are happy but we have to accept the result,” said Thobejani.

“We came here in need of three points and aware Sundowns also need these points. At the end of the game we share and what can you do, it's football.”

Thobejane is confident his side can escape the drop as they sit behind Chippa United on goal difference with three games remaining.

“The three points against Sundowns were important for survival. Now we equal to Chippa. Pressure is on them, they been there for a long time. It means to us we are going up, we not going down. Surely we will stay in the PSL with these three games remaining.”

However, the former school teacher warned his players to focus in their final fixtures against Golden Arrows, fellow strugglers Highlands Park and Ajax Cape Town (May 21).

“Sometimes when players play big teams they go all out but when they play so called small teams they are not there and they can't pitch. There is this thing of complacency. It's our duty as coaches to motivate and encourage them and say, 'guys this our bread and butter'.”
