Matsimela: It Was A Smash And Grab

Baroka FC head coach Matsimela Thoka claims the loss to Orlando Pirates was a smash and grab after a lack of concentration again.

Denwin Farmer gave Bakgaga the lead, before Gabadinho Mhango and Terrence Dzvukamanja completed the turnaround for the Soweto giants.

Thoka was reminded of his record of not having beaten Pirates in the league, but he urged his players to concentrate more.

“You can say it again, smash and grab. It’s just we ball watched and a lack of concentration again, so both sides you can say that it was a game of two halves and we played well. It’s just that a little bit of lack of concentration again,” Thoka told SuperSport TV.

“We played against a good and experienced team, with good players. But the way the boys played, we looked like we could get something and when we watched the time with four minutes to go we needed to control the game well.

“We needed to concentrate and not ball-watching. If you can see the second goal, they played the short-corner so it’s just that we need to pass the matches very well and concentrate and make sure that you mark tight.

“Unfortunately, they managed to score because they wanted it (the) most, they wanted it most, those guys."

Bakgaga sign off their campaign against Swallows FC on Saturday, and the mentor backed his charges to show up with a response.

“I think we need to finish the league (on) a high note against Swallows on Saturday. So that one we must make sure that we collect three points and we can’t manage to lose two games in a row," he added.

“So we need to finish with results so that we can see ourselves and what happened after the last match."
