Cape Town - Baroka FC coach Kgoloko Thobejane believes Kaizer Chiefs scoring first in his side's 2-1 Premiership victory on Saturday, inspired Bakgaga to attack Amakhosi.

Despite George Maluleka firing home a superb strike to hand the Glamour Boys the lead at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, goals from Lewis Macha and Gift Motupa handed Bakgaga three points.

The results means Thobejane's charges incredibly go top of the table in the South African top flight, despite surviving the drop last season by the skin of their teeth.

Nonetheless, Baroka's mentor takes the view that his side's intention to attack was only made stronger when Chiefs took the lead through Maluleka in Durban.

"I told you that we came here for only three things. One, to maintain our unbeaten run against Kaizer Chiefs, two, two maintain our unbeaten run in the league and three, to maintain our position in the log," he told SuperSport TV. 

"There was no way. It was so marvelous when we saw Chiefs scoring, we knew very well that today is our day.

"At Baroka we need to attack, we don't talk about defending. Attacking is our language everyday, so what matters most is finishing. Credit to my boys."
