Big decisions are expected to be made at one of the relegation-threatened DStv Premiership clubs as the season is drawing closer to the finish line.
Vincent Kobola has led Baroka FC to a victory and a draw in the two matches in charge, impressing the Limpopo outfit’s hierarchy, with indications that he could be handed the coaching role permanently.
Kobola was elevated to the head coach role at Bakgaga two weeks ago until the end of the season, following a string of poor results by the team under their former coach Kgoloko Thobejane, who has since been demoted to the club’s DStv Diski Challenge team.
Along with Stanley Nkoana as his assistant, Kobola has kept survival hopes alive for the bottom-placed outfit going into their last two matches of the season against SuperSport United and Maritzburg United respectively.
According to close sources, Kobola is being considered for a permanent role at the club to take him beyond this season irrespective of whether the team survives or goes down at the end of the season.
Discussions are expected to resume at the end of the season, with a big decision set to be made in due course.
