Tonight, the Absa Premiership continues in full swing as newly promoted Baroka FC prepare to take on Bidvest Wits at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Limpopo. The Clever Boys have turned into a footballing powerhouse and have demolished most teams they have come across so far this season, it will be a real challenge for the home side.
One of the most beautiful things about Baroka is their vibrant support base, which is expected to be in full swing in Limpopo tonight. Supporters Club caught up with Bakgaga superfan Thabo Mabowa to see how the Baroka faithful felt ahead of tonight's clash.
Beaver Nazo: Hey Thabo, how are you doing?
Thabo Mabowa: Hey Beaver, all good man, all good.
BN: Bakgakga welcome Wits in a league fixture tonight. Your thoughts on the game?
TM: We're gonna beat Wits tonight Beaver, we are more than ready for them.
BN: Your thoughts on your season thus far?
TM: If you watched our games, it was just luck that was eluding us, we are up there with the rest. We are in the PSL to stay, we are not there to add numbers.
BN: And your thoughts on coach Thobejane?
TM: He is one of the best in the league. Let alone the loss we suffered, but he plays the type of football that every supporter wishes to watch.
BN: In your last game against Highlands Park, you guys had a decent crowd…
TM: The thing is Beaver, a lot of Baroka supporters are based in and around Johannesburg. You will see at all the games we will play. In Johannesburg, we will have a decent crowd.
BN: And the ticket sales for tonight, how are they doing?
TM: They are going fast, Beaver, even myself, I drove last night from Johannesburg and when I got here, people are busy purchasing tickets. It is a big game for us, but Wits will feel that they are far away from home tonight, trust me!
BN: Any message to the boys for tonight's game?
TM: They just have to go there and play their normal game, and not put pressure on themselves. We are happy with the way they play and we will be there to support them.
BN: Thanks for your time, Thabo, and good luck for the rest of the season.
TM: Thank you Beaver, have a great day, man!
