Bartlett Warned Players

Golden Arrows caretaker coach Shaun Bartlett admits his side lacked discipline and did not listen to him as they lost 2-0 to Kaizer Chiefs in a league match on Wednesday night.

Erick Mathoho headed home a Siphiwe Tshabalala set-piece in the second half to opening the scoring for Chiefs, but Bartlett said he warned his team of this and he is bitterly upset that they did not listen to his advice.

“When you come up against a quality team like Chiefs, you contain them for an hour, but you have to keep the same discipline throughout and a lapse of concentration saw us concede from a set-play. I told them (the players) it was going to happen, so it is very disappointing,” said Bartlett.

The result sees Arrows firmly rooted to the bottom of the league table with 13 points from 23 games, seven points adrift of second from bottom Polokwane City.

Bartlett, though, is staying positive and feels his team are still in a race for survival.

“We have quite a few games to go and the positive thing is that the teams around us keep losing, so they are keeping us in the race,” said Bartlett.

“If we look at the few chances we created tonight we can see once again that luck is not on our side, and when you in this position (at the bottom of the table and needing points) it is going to take some time to be on your side.

“We have to create our own luck, keep working hard and keep the same discipline. We have quite a few games to go and we have to make sure we stay together.”
