Baroka will bounce back, says Thobejane

Cape Town - Baroka coach Kgokolo Thobejane lamented his side's wastefulness in the 1-1 draw against Orlando Pirates, but is confident that they will regain their form.

Bakgaga have endured a torrid debut season in the Premiership, collecting a mere 11 points from a possible 33 and the newly-promoted side were fortunate to salvage a point in their most recent league encounter, when goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke's 95th minute overhead kick spectacularly found the back of the net.

Thobejane, who previously claimed that his side will clinch the league trophy, finds his team in a spot of bother, following their latest winless streak of five games, but the highly-animated mentor is adamant that his team will turn things around.

"It can kill you, this football," he said in post-match comments.

"Hundred chances, nothing. But it's football at it's best, so it's one of those games.

"But we'll make it one day. We owe these people a win in this stadium. I'm very much concerned about our play.

"One day Baroka will bounce back and convert all those chances we created. I believe that," he continued.

The Limpopo based-outfit are yet to record a victory at home in six attempts and languish in 10th position on the latest standings.

Baroka will soon get the opportunity to rectify their disappointing away form when they welcome Maritzburg United to the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.

Kick off is scheduled at 15:30.
