Baroka moved into the top eight after a goalless draw with Limpopo rivals Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila on Tuesday afternoon.

Bakgaga were unchanged, with Gerald Phiri Junior playing behind lone-striker Evidence Makgopa while TTM made only one change, as Nicholus Lukhubeni replaced Lerato Lamola in the line-up.

The game was open early on as Celimpilo Ngema came to the closest to grabbing the lead for Tshakhuma in the sixth minute with a looping strike that was saved by shot-stopper Oscarine Masuluke.

Richard Mbulu also came close for Baroka in the 15th minute after going through inside the box but his low strike was saved by goalkeeper Washington Arubi, who denied him again from the rebound.

The sides were attacking each other from end to end and Mbulu had another chance to break the deadlock for Matsimela Thoka's troops in the 33rd minuute after going through on a counter-attack but he dragged his shot wide and Ngema also had another chance for the visitors just before the break but was denied by Masuluke.

The game continued to open up coming from the break but the sides were not taking their chances and Thoka made an attacking change in the 66th minute, as Thamsanqa Masiya replaced Ananias Gebhardt.

Kerr also looked towards his bench for inspiration four minutes later with a triple change, as Monde Mpambaniso replaced Lukhubeni, Thembisani Nevhulamba came on for Ndabithethwa Ndlondlo both for tactical reasons and Edgar Manaka replaced Miguel Timm for fresh legs in midfield.

Bonginkosi Makume had a wonderful chance to snatch the winer for Baroka in stoppage time from a set-piece situation but directed his header over the bar inside the box as the encounter finished goalless, with Bakgaga getting into the top eight by a point while TTM moved up to 12th.
