Golden Arrows have a tough battle to face against Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday as they will welcome the former CAF Champions League winners at the Princess Magogo Stadium.
Abafana Bes’thende lost to Free State Stars to register their ninth game without a win. The 2-1 loss sees head coach Clinton Larsen searching for positives from his team and counting possibilities that never happened.
“We definitely deserved something out of this game after a very strong second half showing,” Larsen told the team’s website.
“We struggled playing into a strong wind first half but used the conditions to our advantage in the second.
We gave ourselves an uphill task after conceding after only two minutes of the restart. We threw everything at Stars with the score at 2-1 and could have equalised had it not been for some tenacious defending by the home team.”
Positives can still be drawn from the team’s situation as they are 5th on the table. They have 17 points from 13 games which is not a bad showing for a start. They have 3 wins, 8 draws and only 2 loses.
The challenge now is to try and overcome Sundowns and make their way to more positive results. The match is scheduled for a 15:30 kick-off.
