Cape Town - Baroka FC head coach Kgoloko Thobejane believes his team deserved all the points following their 1-1 draw with Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday.
The Polokwane-based side made their Premiership debut at home after clinching the National First Division title last season.
Nathan Paulse grabbed the opener for Ajax while Richard Matloga equalised for Baroka in the second half to earn the point.
"This football can kill you sometimes, with all our chances - scoring chances, But this is football, it happens," Thobejane told SuperSport after the match.
"Our boys made a mistake in the first half, so I just told them that a game of football is a game of football - we have to go out and beat these guys.
"They were just standing there, saying 'come to us and we'll get you on the counter', but we are not afraid of counter-attacking football and we'll [keep pushing] until we get those chances.
"But my boys, and I'm sure even the Baroka fans, are happy to see how we played, and my message to them is: 'Baroka is there to make things happen. We still want to write history and carrying on writing these books about football'."
Baroka will take on fellow newcomers Highlands Park on September 13.
