In an effort to save the club from relegation, interim Baroka FC manager Vincent Kobola has promised an intense battle when his teammates face Chippa United at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday.
Bakgaga has nine points to play for in the remaining games, which will bring the club down to 30 points, as they are currently at the bottom of the register with 21, while the Chili Boys, who are in the safe zone in 13th place, are on 27 points. .
At the start of this match, Kobola looks to take advantage of Chippa, who struggled to win games when playing at home. The Eastern Cape team have only achieved one home win at the hands of Stellenbosch FC, beating the Cape Town club 1-0.
“Obviously it will be great, they are also not safe and I think they will come to us. They are playing at home, but they don’t have a good home record.
So, we will come and give our all, we will run more than them, we will jump higher than them and we will make an extra effort because we really want to save the club, “said Kobola., Former Maritzburg United assistant.
“I can’t show pressure, if I put pressure it means that the players will also give up. So, for me, the most important thing is to motivate them because I can’t change lineups and things like that, it’s too late for that.
“I just need to motivate the players and let them know how good they are.”
The Limpopo team will enter this match with great confidence after managing to take a win in their last match when they beat the Golden Arrows 1-0. Chippa, meanwhile, scored a goalless draw with Cape Town City.
