Baroka FC recorded a hard-fought 1-0 Absa Premiership win over Platinum Stars at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg on Saturday afternoon.

As a result Bakgaga moved to position 11 on the league standings, while Dikwena slipped down to position seven.

The visitors dominated the opening stages of the game and Stars goalkeeper Mbongeni Mzimela made two decent saves in the first 20 minutes of the match.

However, Baroka did find the goal they had been looking for just five minutes before half-time as Ndivivhuwo Ravhuhali scored from the spot-kick.

Dikwena captain Vuyo Mere was denied by Baroka goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke in the 63rd minute as the home side pressed for the equalizing goal.

With seven minutes left, Stars head coach Cavin Johnson introduced attacker Sipho Senne for defender Siphiwe Sithole.

Nevertheless, a spirited Baroka side managed to contain Stars on the day and Bakgaga registered their maiden league victory on the day.
