We want the Nedbank Cup – Mphahlele


With confirmation that they will be playing their remaining home matches at the Bidvest Wits Stadium, Baroka Chairman Khurishi Mphahlele insists the players are eager to get back into the field.

The Premier Soccer League on Wednesday conducted a ‘home venue’ draw for all the 32 member clubs ahead of the League and Cup restart which is scheduled for 8 August in Gauteng.

Bakgaga will begin the programme with a Nedbank semi-final match against Bloemfontein Celtic at the Bidvest Stadium.

“We have been waiting for this moment, the boys have been training for the past three weeks and they also want to play,” Mphahlele told FARPost.

“We want to bring this Cup (Nedbank Cup) to the Province and we are ready. You would remember that when the League was suspended in March, we were in top form so we want to start from where we left off,” he said.

Baroka, who had four COVID-19 cases upon their return to training three weeks ago, now have 0 positive cases in the camp.

Their remaining 6 League matches include some tough encounters against the likes of AmaZulu, Orlando Pirates, Chippa United, Mamelodi Sundowns, SuperSport United and current log Leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
