In an effort to save the club from relegation, FC Baroque interim coach Vincent Kobola has vowed a tense battle if his wards face Chip United at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday.
Bakgaga has nine points to play in the remaining matches, which will give the club 30 points, as they are currently at the bottom of the list of 21, and the Chili Boys, who are in the safe zone in 13th place with 27 points.
Heading into this match, Kobola is eager to take advantage of Chippa, who is struggling to win the game by playing at home. The Eastern Cape team registered only one victory at home, which was won by FC Stellenbosch, beating the club from Cape Town with a score of 1-0.
“Obviously it will be great, they are also not safe and I think they will come to us. They play at home, but they don’t have a very good record at home.
So we’re going to come and give our best. We are going to run more than them, we are going to jump above them and we are going to make an extra effort because we really want to save the club, ”said Kobola, who is a former assistant at Maritzburg United.
“I can’t show pressure if I show pressure, which means players will also give up. So the most important thing for me is to motivate them, because I can’t change the formations and other things, it’s too late for that.
“I just need to motivate the players and let them know how good they are.”
Buck Limpopo will be confident in this match after they managed to win the last match when they beat Golden Arrows 1-0. Meanwhile, Chip recorded a zero draw with Cape Town.
