Cape Town - Baroka FC chairman Khurishi Mphahlele says that the club remain confident that head coach Kgoloko Thobejane is the right man for the job.

After occupying top spot on the Absa Premiership standings for several weeks, the wheels have come off for the Limpopo club of late after they lost 4-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns and 3-0 to Maritzburg United in the space of a few days last week.

In fact, Bakgaga are winless in their last seven league outings and have claimed only four points from a possible 21.

However, they remain only three points off the summit and the club boss is not panicking about the recent downturn in results.

"Kgoloko is not going anywhere‚ we don't want to create unnecessary panic because of a few bad losses‚" Mphahlele told TimesLive.

"We have only lost three matches this season and we are three points away from Mamelodi Sundowns‚ who are top of the log.

"We are equal on points with Kaizer Chiefs‚ Bloemfontein Celtic and Chippa United‚ who are above us. Orlando Pirates‚ who are second‚ have one point more than us and I want our fans not to panic but continue supporting the team."

Baroka's final match of 2017 sees them hosting SuperSport United in Polokwane on Sunday afternoon.

Kick off is at 15:30.
