Times are tough for Baroka FC, they have no wins in their last three outings, no clean sheets and they have scored less than 2.5 goals in each of their last five matches. They are no way close to where they need to be to challenge for DSTV Premiership soccer. Their last two league outings ended in draws against Pretoria University and JDR Stars. This was enough to see them finish in the top three. They started their challenge for the DSTV Premiership spot on the back foot when they lost to Pretoria University by 1-0. They are most likely to finish this campaign, in third.

Richards Bay look poised for a return to the DSTV Premiership. They finished the league season brightly, with wins against the biggest teams in the league. in addition to this they have carried their form into the play offs after kicking of their challenge with a 1-0 win against Pretoria University. The early goal, was enough to sink the visitors. Although, we don't expect an identical result in this match, we can however expect a Richards Bay win.
