Botswana international forward Mpho Kgaswane has netted a brace to help Baroka FC beat Cape Town City 2-0 in the South African Premier Soccer League on Tuesday night.

The Zebras international has expressed delight in his goalscoring prowess after missing a number of chances in the Limpopo derby against Polokwane City last weekend.

Kgaswane netted a fine free kick in the 35th minute and went on to wrap up the encounter when he scored in the 90th minute, beating Shua-Aib Walters twice at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Speaking after the match, the former Gaborone United and U-23 international thanked his teammates after also claiming the Man of the Match Award.

“I am happy to score two goals for the team, I work hard, but it was not easy,” said Kgaswane.

“It comes back to what we do in training and we apply it on our matches – that is how we play.

“I don’t know what to say about the brace, I am grateful.”

The brace took the Zebras international’s tally to four goals in the 2017/18 season so far, whilst the Bakgaga Ba Mphahlele sit at number six with 31 points – they have seven matches to wrap their campaign.

However, the 23-year-old will want to continue with his form upfront when they visit Bidvest Wits on Friday night.
