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.
 
Wedson Nyirenda’s troops lost 1-0 to Chippa United in their last league outing last Saturday in Port Elizabeth and will be looking to redeem themselves in front of their own supporters.
 
The Polokwane-based side are placed 13th on the Absa Premiership log with five points from six matches.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Baroka: 1. Chipezeze, 2. Kgoetyane, 24. Banda, 23. Kgaswane, 5. Makume, 4. Madubanya, 8. Mdantsane, 7. Chawapiwa, 13. Mabeba, 12. Makgaka, 9. Chivaviro.
