Substitute Tshediso Patjie secured maximum points for Baroka with a goal in the 89th minute to give Bakgaga a much needed 2-1 win over Maritzburg United at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
Baroka took the lead in the 44th minute through debutant Ethen Sampson. But United striker Judas Mosiamedi found an equaliser in the 49th minute.
But 8 minutes after coming in for Ranga Chivaviro, Patjie slotted home from inside the box to beat Richard Ofori.
Meanwhile, the club has given an update on injured goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze who collided with Judas Moseamedi prior to the latter’s goal.
“For now it looks more like a Neck Muscle Sprain. There will be X-Rays done after the match as a precaution to exclude Cervical spine injuries” the club tweeted.
