Arrows hope to end winless streak

Phakaaathi Reporter

Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen is unconcerned about their current winless run, insisting they can turn things around ahead of their latest Premiership outing against SuperSport United on Sunday.

Abafana Bes’thende are winless in 12 matches, a run that stretches across five different months.

Their current woes have been responsible for a slide from second down to 10th in that period, but Larsen was confident of a turnaround.

“It has been one of those seasons where every team has gone through bad patches and this is ours,” he said. “Hopefully it will end soon and then everyone can relax again. I have no doubt in my players and I know we can turn things around.”

“We have already seen in this league that two wins can shoot you eight up the table, so we’re not worried at all.”

Their visitors this weekend were considered one of the favourites for the title this year, although the inconsistency of every team has left them even worse off than Arrows – in 12th place.

But Matsatsantsa do have three games in hand. They have not reported any fresh injuries, while the host have all but Danny Phiri at their disposal. Sandile Zuke could make his debut after joining from Chippa United this week.
