Baroka needed no motivation

Polokwane - Following another impressive win over cross town rivals Polokwane City, Baroka FC midfielder Donald Makondelela said his team-mates needed no motivation to cause an upset over PSL sides in the Nedbank Cup.

The National First Division side eliminated their third Absa Premiership club, Rise and Shine, from the Ke Yona competition with a 2-0 triumph in their quarter-final encounter played at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.

Albert Mothupa and Collins Makgaka first-half strikes were sufficient to advance Baroka to their second semi-finals of the R7m competition.

Makondelela believes playing against the top flight clubs are motivations on their own and every player produces their top notch performances as they intend to make names for themselves.

“It was a great game of football overall and the boys did well,” said Makondelela.

“We didn’t need any motivation from the coach and the entire technical team.

“Since the tournament started, we were all motivated by the fixtures we played.

“Games like these you need to step up as a player and show your true potential, especially playing against a PSL side.

“So we’ll take the credit going forward and we really fought hard as a team.”

Baroka will have another tough assignment against SuperSport United in the semi-finals.

Kick-off is at 20:15 on Saturday, May 14.
