Cape Town - Maritzburg United coach Eric Tinkler says they will have to do their own work and not rely on other teams to do them favours.

The Team of Choice are still very much in the pack that still aims to avoid relegation after a satisfying 3-1 victory over SuperSport United at home last week.

The KwaZulu-Natal club are still at the bottom of the table but know a win against Bakgaga in the last game of the campaign will take them above their opponents.

While Maritzburg have won their last two matches, results it seems have not gone their way with teams around them also picking up vital points and Tinkler had a go at Kaizer Chiefs who drew 1-1 with relegation candidates Free State Stars.

In quotes published on KickOff website, Tinkler said: "We are going to Baroka FC to do the job and the guys we will be highly motivated going into the game.

"It won't be easy for us. I've been saying anyone is beatable in this league.

"If you look at names on paper you would expect Chiefs to be a lot better but to be honest, they've been very poor, shockingly poor.

"I expected them to lose against Free State Stars judging on their last five or six league matches."

The final round of fixtures in the Absa Premiership will all be played at the same on Saturday afternoon.
