Lebogang Manyama says Kaizer Chiefs are prepared for the task of facing an unpredictable Baroka in the Premiership on Tuesday.

Chiefs were in a good run of form, winning three successive league games before being held a goalless draw with Stellenbosch.

They last faced Bakgaga on the last day of the 2019/20 campaign where a win was needed to claim the league title, only for the game to end 1-1.

Speaking ahead of this clash, Manyama told the club's website: "Obviously we won't forget them. We played against them in the last game of last season and we all know what happened.

"They are a difficult team to play against, just like all the teams in the Premiership.

"When you play every three days, there’s no simple team to play against. We are all pushing to be fresh for the next game."

While Chiefs come into this game in seventh place, Baroka are in 10th, just two points worse off.

"Baroka lost their last game and it’s difficult to play a team that lost their last game. But we are focused on things we need to improve on," added Manyama.
