Baroka will be fighting to get into the top eight when they host neighbors Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in the DStv Premiership on Tuesday afternoon at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The match is scheduled to start at 15h00.
Bakgaga revived their top eight hopes with a 1-0 win over AmaZulu that ended Usuthu's 16-game unbeaten run a week ago.
Matsimela Thoka's charges leapfrogged Kaizer Chiefs into ninth place on the log with 32 points, equal on points with eighth-placed TS Galaxy.
On the other hand, resurgent TTM boosted their chances of surviving relegation with a crucial 1-0 over rivals Maritzburg United on Saturday.
Dylan Kerr's troops went up to 13th on the log, three points clear of the relegation play-off spot held by Chippa United and they could leapfrog Kaizer Chiefs into tenth place if they win and Bloemfontein Celtic don't get maximum points against Chippa.
