Buchanan: We will not underestimate Baroka

Cape Town - After an impressive Soweto derby debut, Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Keagan Buchanan admits his team won't risk complacency against newly-promoted Baroka FC in midweek.

Bakgaga first made a name for themselves nationally during their incredible Nedbank Cup run as a third-tier club - beating Amakhosi in the quarter-finals.

Buchanan recalls that cup-tie and understands that taking their opposition lightly is not an option as Chiefs look to maintain their unbeaten run in the Premiership.

"I watched that encounter a few years ago. I remember vividly the packed Peter Mokaba Stadium when they beat us," the 25-year-old told KickOff.

"But, that's now for the history books. We have moved on and a lot has changed since then. Wednesday's match will be a new ball game.

"Playing Baroka in Durban is another massive match to look forward to. We will not underestimate them.

"We also can't take them for granted. Judging by their form you see that they deserve to be in the big league.

"We are going there to fulfill our mandate. We are preparing to win the match and play good football on Wednesday."

Kick off is at 19:30.
