A quick counter attack in the 10th minute saw Robin Ngalande force Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune into a save.

Talent Chawapiwa, the Zimbabwe international, was causing a lot of problems for the Chiefs defence with his pace and skill.

The attacker hit the upright and Lucky Ngalande scored from the rebound to make it 1-0 to Baroka on the half-hour mark.

Baroka then stood firm at the back and they were leading 1-0 at the interval.

Chiefs piled pressure on Bakgaga after the restart and they equalized through Ryan Moon, who scored with aheader to make it 1-1.

But Amakhosi were reduced to 10 men in the 72nd minute when Joseph Molangoane was sent off for elbowing Khutso Mohwatseleng.

Chiefs never lost hope as they snatched a late winning goal when he debutant Leonardo Castro scored to seal the visitors' 2-1 win.
