Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen has set his sights on collecting at least four points from their last two games in a bid to secure a top-eight finish in the Absa Premiership.

Abafana Be’sthende are currently in ninth spot with 37 points from 28 games, a point behind SuperSport United in eighth place.

"Under the circumstances of poor conditions we did well to come away from East London with a point," Larsen told the club's official website.

"Our players put in another sterling shift against a very good Chippa team. We were solid defensively and frustrated our opponents who were limited to shooting from distance. We were disappointing after winning possession as we immediately turned over possession.

"We have now picked up 7 points from our last 3 games with two of them being away from home.

"We have targeted at least 4 points from our remaining 2 games and hope it's good enough for a top-eight finish."

Arrows face Jomo Cosmos on Wednesday and will travel to University of Pretoria for the last match on May 21.
