Baroka FC welcome Kaizer Chiefs to the Peter Mokaba Stadium for a crunch DStv Premiership clash this evening.
The Amakhosi will be looking to pick up their first win in 2022 after disappointingly going down in the opening round of the Nedbank Cup against TS Galaxy.
Kaizer Chiefs then played out to another disappointing goalless draw against Cape Town City in their second match of 2022.
Baroka themselves will be desperate for a full three points this evening. The Limpopo outfit currently sit rock bottom of the DStv Premiership log standings.
Baroka vs Kaizer Chiefs: LIVE UPDATES
We need the three points – Baxter
“With Baroka we know if you look at their result when they played against Sundowns, they gave them a good game.” Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter said.
“Arguably, if they had taken their chances earlier in the game, they could have won. So we know when they play against us when we play very well for a period and if we allow that level to go down, it will be a competitive game.
“We know when they play against a Sundowns, a Kaizer Chiefs or an Orlando Pirates, let’s call it the bigger clubs on paper, Baroka can get themselves up for it and can be difficult opponents.
“We also know if we play like we can play, we can be a difficult opponent as well. There are no foregone conclusions, no surprises, just a good professional job, get the points and bring them back to Joburg.
“Every team needs goals. You need balance. We want goals without going gung-ho and suddenly losing 4-0.
“Kaizer Chiefs want goals coming from things you can repeat. You get a goal and someone shoots from 40 metres, has three ricochets and we get lucky and we win.
“Can we repeat that? We want a style of football that will hurt opponents, gives good balance and we can defend behind it and we can repeat it.”
