Mngqithi Bemoans "National Problem"

Golden Arrows coach Manqoba Mngqithi believes his team are suffering from a national problem of not taking their chances, but is hoping for better luck when they take on University of Pretoria on Sunday.

Abafana Bes’thende are flirting with relegation early on in the season, having collected only four points in five league games so far. They come off a disappointing result in midweek, losing 1-0 to Free State Stars.

However, the coach believes it is only a matter of time before they start getting positive results and is hoping that their fortunes change in front of goal.

Mngqithi told the Siya crew, “I think my preparations have gone well. Fortunately we don’t have any suspensions and we hope to rectify our error of not scoring goals. We have to be patient because it’s not an Arrows problem, it’s a national problem. We hope that the boys will improve sooner than later.

"We’re expecting Tuks to come out and attack, but that could backfire on them. We have to focus on ourselves though. We’ve not been conceding by big margins, like against Stars, they scored one goal and we couldn’t reply and in the end we lost. It's scoring that's a problem.”
