Bonginkosi Makume scored from the penalty spot in the 33rd minute to give his side the win. Golden Arrows had double the amount of shots on target that Baroka had but could not find an equaliser. However, Makume’s goal proved to be the deciding factor as Baroka hung on for a win, their first under new coach Vincent Kobola.

Baroka are now two points behind Swallows FC in 15th place and three points behind Maritzburg United. Maritzburg United take on Royal AM later today.
