Baroka FC closed the chapter of 2017 in the best way possible with an emphatic 3-1 win over SuperSport United. With this victory, they ended a winless run which had stretched to six matches.
Of their last five league matches, Baroka FC have won once, lost twice and drawn twice. They have scored six and conceded eleven goals during that same period.
Pirates on the other hand have not fared any better. In fact, their last match of 2017 ended in a disappointing defeat at the hands of Free State Stars in a match where the side squandered many goal scoring opportunities.
Goal scoring has been Pirates’ Achilles heel this season. Of their last five matches, Pirates have only scored three goals and conceded the same number – winning once and drawing the rest.
