Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen hailed his side's 'brilliant' fighting spirit following their victory over Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday evening.
A brace from Limbikani Mzava guided the Durban outfit to a 2-1 win over the Soweto giants at the Princess Magogo Stadium.
Larsen was pleased to see how his players kept fighting till the end in the tough conditions.
“It’s a huge three points if you look at the league and the greater scheme of things, getting a little bit closer to the teams above us and also putting a little bit of distance between us and the teams below, bottom three and bottom four,” Larsen told SuperSport after the match.
“The conditions weren’t good for both teams but I think for a good hour my team adapted well and played a decent brand of football on the pitch as it was.
“The fighting spirit was brilliant, players fought till the end. Tactically I had to change it towards the end when they were going the aerial route. I had to play with a back six with [Siphelele] Magubane and [Wayde] Jooste marking the channels. It worked well.
“[Limbikani]Mzava and [Lungisani] Mngengwe had to deal with [Leonardo] Castro and the big boys and did so with aplomb. [Maximilian] Mbaeva after not playing for so long came in and gave us a sterling performance. On the balance of play we deserved what we got.”
