Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen believes they fought like soldiers despite going down 2-1 to Orlando Pirates in the Absa Premiership on Saturday.

After a poor first half, Larsen is proud of how his charges managed to put on a stern second-half display, despite being a man and two goals down at that.
“First half, we were very poor. Gave them too much space. At halftime, we rectified that and came out a little bit better with more confidence," Larsen told SuperSport after the game.
“Like I said, playing with a man down and still created three to four very good chances. Against a quality side being a man down is never easy because they easily have their tails up and the supporters backing.
“So even under those circumstances our players never give up and almost equalized at the death. They played like soldiers tonight."
When asked about the sending off  incident in the second half, Larsen replied, “I didn’t see it from my side. I just thought the boys gave it their all tonight."
