Wedson Nyirenda’s Baroka FC enhanced their South Africa PSL survival hopes on Sunday after moving two places away from the relegation zone.
Baroka beat 11th placed Amazulu 1-0 at home to move from third from bottom of the table with two games left to play.
The Polokwane side jumped from 14th to 12th position on the log on 28 points, four points more than second from bottom Chippa United who are 15th and occupying the relegation playoff spot.
Victory in their penultimate match against third placed Bidvest Wits away in Johannesburg this Saturday will end their relegation fight with a match to spare.
But a draw would also be enough should Baroka’s town rivals Polokwane City do them a favour and beat Chippa on the same day at home.
