Cape Town - Baroka coach Wedson Nyirenda is determined to cause an upset against Orlando Pirates by claiming Bakgakga's first win at home this season.
The Polokwane outfit have claimed three Absa Premiership wins so far this campaign but none of them have come in front of their own fans and they find themselves down in 12th position due to the poor form at home.
However, Nyirenda remains convinced that his charges have the ability to get one over Pirates, just like they did in the Telkom Knockout final last season to lift their first trophy.
"This game is very important to us because we haven't won at home this season. Our home record is very pathetic, and we need to change that. We need to be dominant at home. We've lost and drawn games at home which is not right. We need to do better starting with the game against Pirates," said Nyirenda, according to IOL.
"Pirates haven't started well. They've also struggled for results and they know that they need to push in order to be back where they belong. So, I am expecting a very entertaining game, both teams will fight.
"Tactically, we have to be disciplined. We are aware that they will throw everything at us. They are a well-organised team. Very structured. They have the players that can dictate the pace of the game.
"Pirates are playing good football but we will give it our best shot."
Baroka will host the Buccaneers at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.
