Larsen: Sundowns Caused Us Problems

Larsen: Sundowns Caused Us Problems

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 17, 2018 11:15 PM

Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen admits his side struggled against Mamelodi Sundowns on Tuesday night.

The KZN side only went down 1-0 to the Brazilians in an Absa Premiership match at Loftus Versfeld, despite seeing very little of the ball.

Speaking after the match, Larsen admits it was a difficult game but still feels his side had chances to score.

“I thought in the first half it was quite difficult. Sundowns movement was quite good, their interchanging of position was good. It caused us a few problems, but we had a few chances in the first half as well,” Larsen told SuperSport after the game.

“In the second half, we came out a completely different team. I thought that we competed up until the end.

“There was that last-ditch tackle from (Wayne) Arendse on (Lerato) Lamola at the end of the match. It was a big shout at the end, and I need to have another look at that. From where I was sitting it looked like a tackle from behind (and a penalty), but you get some and you don’t get some.

“The second half performance was much better than the first.”

Looking ahead to Arrows’ last three fixtures of the league season, Larsen is very aware of the importance of collecting points to avoid the relegation zone.

Currently, the KZN side occupy 12th place on the league table with 31 points, only three points above 15th place Ajax Cape Town.

“Our remaining fixtures are not easy fixtures against Kaizer Chiefs, Platinum Stars and Maritzburg," he said.

“A point in this game would have been a very good point,” added Larsen.

“Sundowns have beaten everybody so we knew it was going to be difficult.

“We just need to try maximise the points in the next few games. I think the Chiefs and Platinum Stars games are going to be very important to try and pick up points there.”
