Games in the DStv Premiership are starting to intensify with teams looking to rack up as many points as possible as the end of the season slowly approaches, and one team that needs to get things right is Baroka FC.
Bakgaga is at the bottom of the standings, a place they are quite familiar with, but this is something assistant coach Vincent Kobola says they want to change in their quest to avoid being relegated.
Baroka have only managed to collect 14 points in their last 20 league games, leaving the club at the bottom of the log.
With 10 games to go until the end of the campaign, Kobola says their main goal is to win half of their remaining games to ensure they don’t get relegated. Bakgaga are set to begin their mission when they take on neighbors Marumo Gallants at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday, but they haven’t been able to book a league win since December last year.
“Of course you can see that our log position is not good. I think we have a plan for the last 10 games, if we can win five games I think it can give us enough points to survive the whop,” said Baroka’s assistant coach.
“It’s a Limpopo derby, it’s going to be a big one. They are also not yet safe. So it will be a very interesting game. But we are prepared, we have to go out and collect maximum points.”
Kobola believes his team has shown good football and thinks the only problem is finding the back of the net.
“We played well, we just need to sharpen our attack beforehand. We worked hard on training, especially on the finish, we focused on that,” he concluded.
