“But it’s not over just yet. This is a race, and Baroka have just taken the lead but the race is not over. What matters is who finishes first,” he added.

Zimu said Lidoda Duvha remain hopeful of making it to the Absa Premiership next season. Leopards are now third in the three team mini league which includes Stellenbosch FC.

Jean-Pierre Luscuito’s team have one point after two matches while Stellenbosch have two and Leopards top with four.

“There are still games to play and we remain hopeful of coming back into it,” he said.
