The Buccaneers missed out on a third straight league win after they surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Cape Town City on Wednesday night.
However, Milutin Sredojevic’s charges will have another chance to go top of the log after leaders Bidvest Wits lost 1-0 to Polokwane City on Friday night.
The Soweto giants are third on the table with 11 points from seven matches, two points behind table-topping Wits.
Meanwhile, Bakgaga have not won a league match in four straight games and will be desperate for points on their home turf.
