Downs, Chiefs And Two Other Tough Fixtures For Arrows
Tough Fixtures For Golden Arrows
Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs are some of the tough fixtures awaiting Golden Arrows in their last four matches.
Abafana Bes’thende are left with four matches in their 2017/18 Absa Premiership campaign. Tonight, Arrows will be at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium for their match against Sundowns, before taking on Chiefs at the Princess Magogo Stadium next Tuesday.
The last two matches for Arrows will be against Platinum Stars (28 April) and Maritzburg United (12 May) respectively. Both matches will be played in KwaZulu-Natal, at Princess Magogo Stadium and Harry Gwala Stadium.
Arrows head coach, Clinton Larsen, says he prefers playing against the big teams at this stage of the season.
“I’d rather be playing the likes of Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns at this stage of the season, than an Ajax Cape Town or Platinum Stars who are fighting for their lives,” Larsen told the PSL’s website.
“It’s easy to get the boys motivated – they are self-motivated when playing against these big teams, but you’ve really got to drive them when playing against the so-called smaller teams.
“Right now, going into the games against the bigger clubs, I know we’ll get a lot more out of them – it’s often the case that they’re trying to impress the bigger clubs. Coming from a smaller club I did that in my career too,” concluded the coach.
