Lamontville Golden Arrows coach Steve Komphela says his team used the 11-day gap between fixtures to work on their approach and mindset.
Abafana Besthende’s last outing was on the 8th of January when they stemmed a four-game losing streak by beating Baroka FC at home.
They face an embattled Polokwane City this Sunday in what Komphela expects to be a tough encounter in Limpopo.
Arrows performances against City this season will certainly encourage Komphela. They beat them in the league and dumped them out of the Telkom Knockout at home.
Komphela says he hopes his team has learnt from their shortcomings in the first round of the league.
Arrows have struggled away from home all season with just one win to their name. Komphela believes his team has been desperately unlucky on their travels and hopes to turn the tide in the remaining games of the campaign.
He says it’s important to perform consistently whether they are at home or on the road.
City are rock bottom, but due to the tightness of the table, victory against Abafana Besthende’ will drag them out of the relegation zone.
Rise and Shine’s coach Clinton Larsen spent three seasons at Arrows and understand the team’s personnel and approach intimately.
Komphela says Larsen’s understanding of his players is an advantage for him. – Report by Thahir Asmal
