Strug­gling Baroka beef up strike­force

The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

BOT­TOM of the ta­ble Baroka FC have boosted their fal­ter­ing at­tack by sign­ing both Helder Pelembe and Siphamandla Sang­weni for the sec­ond half of the Absa Premier­ship sea­son. Mozam­bi­can in­ter­na­tional Pelembe, 29, has been with­out a club since be­ing re­leased by Or­lando Pi­rates while Sang­weni moves after fail­ing to make the grade at the Buc­ca­neers. Pelembe was on loan at Bloem­fontein Celtic last sea­son but played just four times. The 27-year-old Sang­weni scored one goal for Baroka last sea­son in the Na­tional First Di­vi­sion when on loan from Pi­rates. He also had a spell at Cape Town All Stars. Sang­weni started his ca­reer at Black Leop­ards but has played only 45 min­utes of Absa Premier­ship foot­ball. Baroka have man­aged only 12 goals so far this term, and at the mid­way point of the sea­son the team are last in the stand­ings with just two wins thus far. They re­sume their sea­son on Fe­bru­ary 8 away at Chippa United.
