Baroka continued their impressive start to the season after defeating Bloemfontein Celtic 2-0 on Wednesday evening.
The Limpopo outfit enjoyed an unbeaten start ahead of the encounter, and headed into the clash on the back of a win over Celtic's cross-town rivals.
The first half got off to a slow start as neither side took advantage in the opening 15 minutes.
That proved to be the trend for the most of the first half, as chances were tough to come by for both clubs.
Baroka eventually broke the deadlock three minutes before the halftime break courtesy of a strike from Sipho Moeti.
The second half continued in the same fashion in the first with both sides struggling to create clear-cut openings.
However, Baroka eventually sealed the win in the 85th minute as substitute Mpho Kgaswane fired past Patrick Tignyemb.
Here's how they lined up:
Celtic: 30. Tignyemb, 3. Pfumbidzai, 22. Rikhotso, 27. Ndengane, 10. Mabena, 5. Letlabika, 45. Nyundu, 35. Baloyi, 11. Hotto, 8. Phalane, 33. Motshegwa.
Baroka: 16. Vries, 15. Mothupa, 6. Shaku, 24. Banda, 31. Masenamela, 4. Madubanya, 8. Mdantsane, 21. Moeti, 11. Matloga, 10. Ntshangase, 9. Nguzana.
