Stars, Baroka fail to move away from possible relegation

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A share of the spoils in an Absa Premiership match between Free State Stars and Baroka FC has left the two sides still threatened by relegation.

Both teams managed to score two goals each at the Goble Park Stadium in Bethlehem on Wednesday night, making a slight change in the log standing.

Ea Lla Koto took the lead twenty-minutes into the game when Mpho Khabane netted.

Baroka equalised five minutes into the second-half from centre-back Lawrence Ntswane.

Stars fought back to gain the lead five minutes later with a goal from Sibusiso Hlubi but Collins Makgaka  levelled the score on the seventy-third minute. Stars coach Nikola Kavazovic has more.

Both sides moved one place up on the log standings with Stars now on twelfth position and Baroka on fourteenth.

The Serbian international coach says that his side and Baroka do not deserve to find themselves in the relegation zone.

With three more games left for both sides before the end of the season they will soon need to start collecting maximum points if they are to see themselves move away from the relegation zone.

Baroka head coach Wedson Nyirenda feels this would be a great game for television viewers. -Reporting by Tshenolo Meruti
