Cape Town - Baroka FC coach Wedson Nyirenda was full
of praise for his side's display in the 1-0 victory over Kaizer Chiefs
at FNB Stadium on Saturday evening.
Bakgaga moved in to to 13th place above Free State Stars and Chippa
United with the win which came courtesy of a stunning Tsidisho Patjie
curling free-kick in the 65th minute.
And Nyirenda could not hide his delight after the full-time whistle.
"What a wonderful game we had today," the former Kaizer Chiefs striker told Supersport.
"I cannot ask for more than this from the players. We were playing
against an organised and structured team coached by great men, Mr
Bartlett and Mr Middendorp. I said towards the end of the week ever
since they came in, Chiefs have been a different team. I'm so proud of
Baroka play league leaders Sundowns next weekend at Peter Mokaba
Stadium and Nyirenda simply wants his side to get over the euphoria as
quickly as possible and begin preparing for the clash with the
Brazilians, who will be high on confidence following their 5-0
dismantling of 'team of the century' Al Ahly in a CAF Champions League
quarter-final first-leg tie at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
"We just have to take it a game at a time," said the Bakgaga boss.
"If we can beat Chiefs at home at FNB Stadium, we can do well at home against Sundowns. We drew with them at their own home.
"But this time it will be a very different ball game. They are
chasing the championship and haven't yet won a trophy this season so
they will be coming for us. We just have to put this game away and
prepare for the next game."
