Arrows’ Must-Win Game!

Usually when the so-called small teams meet the big giants, upsets can be expected, but Golden Arrows are struggling and will have it tough against Kaizer Chiefs.

Abafana Bes’thende have really had a tough season and wins been elusive. But a win is desperately needed in Lamontville at this stage of the season and, although a victory against the Amakhosi will not see us moving up the league table yet, it will go a long way in restoring faith from the supporters and boosting the confidence levels for the upcoming games. There is no doubt that there is a lot of potential going forward.

On the attack Arrows have shown glimpses of their brilliance at certain stages of the season and it is for this reason that they could surprise Chiefs. They are an attacking side and will surely have a go at us, which is why we need to be patient and catch them on the counter.

Although football is a team sport, Itumeleng Khune will possibly still be missing in action and his leadership is not replaceable – no matter what they tell you. To drive the point home, there is a belief that if Khune was not injured for the Champions League game against AS Vita in Kinshasa, Chiefs would not have lost by 3-0... or would not have lost at all.

The biggest concern is obviously our defence. What is disappointing is perhaps not that we are conceding – it is just the manner in which we are letting in goals. It’s individual errors and lapses of concentration at crucial times. On any day, Chiefs need no second invitation to punish you in the box. The striking force of the likes of Bernard Parker, Kingston Nkhatha and Matthew Rusike cannot be given space to roam free in our half.

In Arrows we still believe!
