With his team having the joint second worse record of number of goals scored (7) and languishing at position 12 after 11 games, Baroka FC coach Wedson Nyirenda has every reason to be worried.
Baroka together with Chippa United are the only two teams who are yet to register a win at home in a League match the entire season.
But with the all-important battle against Golden Arrows at the Peter Mokaba Stadium tonight at 19:30, Nyirenda is hoping to see something different from his players.
“We have done a lot of homework in terms of poor finishing during our training sessions and we have seen a lot of changes. So, looking at what we have seen maybe we can see something different because in training you can see something else but at the end of the day when you come to the game (the players) don’t want to apply themselves,” said Nyirenda.
“When you work on something you expect some change at the end of the day so it worries the coach when you do a lot of work and you see something special at training but when they come into the game you don’t see anything it worries so much”
“But I think I have seen something which is so different in terms of patience also and the belief when they are on the ball which is a good sign.”
The other Absa Premiership matches tonight at 19:30; Kaizer Chiefs are away to Stellenbosch at the Cape Town Stadium and Maritzburg United host SuperSport United at Harry Gwala Stadium.
Chippa United will entertain Black Leopards at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium while Bloemfontein Celtic take on Cape Town City at Dr Molemela Stadium.
