Teams: Baroka v TS Galaxy
Date: 27 April 2021
Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium
Baroka will be chasing a spot in the top eight when they host TS Galaxy in the DStv Premiership clash on Wednesday evening at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The match is scheduled to start at 17h00.
Baroka remained in the hunt for a top eight spot after their 1-1 draw with Maritzburg United last Friday extended their unbeaten run to five matches.
Matsimela Thoka's charges are lying ninth on the log with 28 points, equal on points with eighth-placed Kaizer Chiefs, who host Chippa United in the afternoon.
On the other hand, the Rockets will be eager to halt their losing streak after recording their fourth consecutive defeat with a 2-1 loss to AmaZulu on Saturday.
As a result, Owen Da Gama's charges dropped down to 11th on the log with 26 points but they still have a chance to grab a top eight spot, just two points behind eighth-placed Chiefs and ninth-placed Baroka.
The sides could not be seperated in the first round clash, in a four-goal thriller in January this year at Mbombela Stadium.

Baroka: 30. Masuluke, 35. Mphahlele, 5. Makume, 33. Farmer, 24. Jampies, 12. Mgaga, 14. Mosele, 37. Kamatuka, 21. Masiya, 10. Phiri Jr, 27. Makgopa.
