The KwaZulu-Natal outfit has now accumulated 15 points from the 13 matches played thus far this season and are 10th on the Absa Premiership log.

Arrows head coach, Clinton Larsen, has been impressed with how his team performed against Amakhosi.

“A much-needed victory under trying playing conditions. We acquitted ourselves well and began the match with good intensity and attack-minded play. Our offensive players pressed collectively and with good coordination, and as a result, restricted Chiefs from developing any rhythm during their build-up phase,” Larsen told Arrows’ official website.

“We looked dangerous on the break and without trying to sound arrogant could have gone into the break three or four goals up. We deservedly took a 2-0 lead into the half-time break. We had to show dogged determination and defensive tenacity as Chiefs threw everything at us in the final 15-20 minutes,” added the coach.

Larsen has indicated that the team is looking at moving away from the relegation zone as they approach the Christmas break.

Their last two matches of 2018 will be against Bidvest Wits and AmaZulu on December 12 and December 22 respectively.

“Our defensive unit was sound as our opponents went the aerial route in search of an equaliser. A massive three points in the bigger scheme of things as again it’s quite tight at the bottom and mid-table as we approach the halfway mark,” concluded Larsen.
