Cape Town - Baroka FC's longest-serving player, Albert Mothupa, believes his side will gain their much deserved promotion to the Absa Premiership.

Kgokolo Thobejane's men are on the verge of winning the National First Division as they lead the standings with 59 points from 28 matches played thus far.

Bakgaga host struggling African Warriors at Charles Mopeli Stadium for their penultimate league clash on Wednesday afternoon, before travelling to Milano United for their final match of the season.

Mothupa, who has been with the Limpopo club since their time in the fourth tier of South African football, feels the team's success is imminent, adding that they just need to remain level-headed in the two remaining fixtures.

"I told the boys that we should be focused. I was telling them that this game [against Warriors] is like our first game in the PSL," he said.

"We are preparing for the PSL. I have confidence that we will play in the PSL. Winning promotion would mean so much because I started with this  team. I will retire here."

Baroka will become the second team from Limpopo to compete in the top flight next term, after neighbours Polokwane City managed to retain their Premiership status.
