JOHANNESBURG - Baroka will want to return to winning ways when they meet SuperSport United in the Premiership on Sunday afternoon at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

The hosts have experienced a bad run in recent times and their mission is to go all the way and wrap up their 2017 with a win.

Bakgaga are fresh from a 2-2 draw against Platinum Stars, a 3-0 loss to Maritzburg United and a 4-0 drubbing by log leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns.

Heading to this encounter, they will be hoping to return to winning ways at home and capitalise on United’s lukewarm run.

Having occupied the top of the log table in the last quarter, coach Kgoloko Thobejane’s side now sits at number seven with 19 points from 14 league games.

Looking at the Tshwane side, Amatsantsantsa A Pitori have failed to take advantage of their games in hand and will need a win.

Despite beating Ajax Cape Town, they went on to draw against Orlando Pirates, Cape Town City and were beaten by Free State Stars on Wednesday in Bethlehem.

The run has caused headaches for the technical team, but coach Eric Tinkler must come up with a strategy to bag a win over Baroka and Bloemfontein Celtic next Wednesday.

Sitting at the 11th spot with 15 points from nine games leaves United with more chances to close the gap on neighbours, Sundowns.

The Tshwane side has had an excellent run in their CAF Confederation Cup campaign and fatigue could be a possibility in their camp, but to win these two games is a must before the Christmas break. 

Kick-off is at 3:30pm.
