Cape Town - Baroka FC head coach Kgoloko Thobejane could not hide his delight after watching his side beat Kaizer Chiefs on penalties in the final of the FAME Charity Cup on Saturday.

Bakgaga will make their first foray into the South African top flight this season after winning the National First Division last term and proved they would not be out of their depth after holding the Soweto giants to a 0-0 draw through 90 minutes.

They claimed victory in the resulting penalty shootout thanks to three fantastic saves from Oscarine Masuluke, and Thobejane wants big victories against top teams to become the norm at the club.

"This is what as Baroka we need. We are ready and you know what, we want to win cups. We need to be champions every time we play football because it must be our norm in Baroka," he told SuperSport.

Thobejane has been openly critical of his side's lack of goals in pre-season and was disappointed they failed to score once again, even though they ended up winning the match.

"It happened again this game, but in a game of football this thing of missing a chance is a challenge, it's not a problem," he added.

"When you play football you must know that you can create 20 chances and just score one goal, that's football."
