How do you go from beating title contenders Cape Town City in a cup quarter-final, but then lose to relegation battlers Baroka FC in the league in your next game?
That is what Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp is trying to figure out after the Amakhosi went down 1-0 to Bakgaga at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night.
A superb free kick by Tshediso Patjie in the second half gave the visitors the lead, and Chiefs were unable to pull one back.
And, to add to their misery, defender Teenage Hadebe is in serious doubt for Saturday’s Premiership clash with Black Leopards in Thohoyandou (3pm kickoff).
The Zimbabwean was concussed against Baroka, and the club announced that while his “symptoms have improved”, he is expected to be out for between seven and 10 days.
