The home side carved out another chance after 25 minutes when Richard Matloga brilliantly picked out Letsoalo, who headed over with only Aubrey Mothiba to beat.

Leopards, meanwhile, were finding it to get maintain possession in the clash, which led to a lack of opportunities.

Zimu made the perfect impact, as he pulled a goal back for Leopards in the 67th minute with a simple finish, following a handling error from Oscarine Masuluke.

Leopards nearly leveled matters five minutes later but Zimu's towering header crashed against the upright with Masuluke well beaten.

Masuluke came to Baroka's rescue in the 88th minute, as he produced a fine save to keep Mwape Musonda's stinging effort.

The visitors continued to push for an equaliser in the closing stages, but Baroka managed to hold till the full-time whistle, as they held on for three points.
