second-tier side Golden Arrows in the Nedbank Cup on Friday night.

The result leaves the Durban side with only their Premier
League status to play for this season, the team currently lying nine points
adrift at the foot of the table.
Usuthu took the lead through Bornwell Mwape, but Arrows hit
back to win the game through a Mabuthi Khenyeza free-kick and a Roscoe
Pietersen own goal.
"It’s very difficult. In our last five games we’ve been
leading in four and can’t see it out," Barker said after the match.
"The free-kick and goal changed the momentum, and going
into half-time at 1-1 instead of 1-0 just changed the momentum.
“Another own goal - when it’s really tough, things just
don't go your way.
“At the end of the day they’re coming off a winning streak
and we haven’t [won in seven games].
“I think they’ve learnt how to win and we’ve forgotten how
to win," he said.
