Maritzburg United defeated Baroka 3-1 in an Absa Premiership match at the Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg on Friday evening.

As a result the Team of Choice climb to seventh spot of the league standings, while Bakgaga stay 15th on the log.

The Team of Choice made their intentions clear just 11 minutes into game when Kwanda Mngonyama scored with a left-footed effort to make it 1-0 to Maritzburg.

It was soon 2-0 to Maritzburg after Mohau Mokate netted with a headed effort with Baroka goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke well beaten.

Mokate then came very close to extending his side's lead in the 33rd minute, but his effort was blocked after he had rounded Masuluke.

Maritzburg were leading 2-0 during the half-time break thanks two good goals from Mngonyama and Mohau in the first stanza.

Bakgaga came back an improved side applying pressure on the Team of Choice defence with second-half substitute Jose Garcia looking lively upfront.

The midfielder did score for the visitors from the spot-kick making it 2-1 for Baroka after Mpho Kgaswane was fouled in the Maritzburg box on the hour-mark.

However, the Bakgaga defence was left vulnerable as they pushed forward in numbers in search of another goal in order to restore parity.

Bevan Fransman snatched a late goal from a free-kick to hand Maritzburg a 3-1 victory after the Team of Choice had attacked against the run of play.
