Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen is pleased to have three of his key players back in the fold ahead their Absa Premiership clash with Polokwane City.

Abafana Bes'thende take on Rise and Shine in a league tie on Wednesday, and Arrows will welcome back Kagisho Dikgacoi and Nkanyiso Mngwengwe, after they were suspended.

Kenyan midfielder Cliffton Miheso also looks set to be available after he recovered from an illness while on international duty.

"[Miheso] is back training with the team, and he's looking good. There’s a good possibility he will be in contention for a spot in the team," Larsen told KickOff.

"With the return of 'KG' [Dikgacoi] and Mngwengwe, that experience will strengthen the team so it’s going to be good to have them back.

"We have missed them for two games and hopefully we can get back to winning ways with them in the team."

Arrows have made a positive start to the season and at one stage sat atop the standings as they look to continue their fine form going into the December break.

Larsen's men currently sit fourth, just three points off leaders Bidvest Wits and a win could see Arrows move up the table with the top three teams playing each other.

Kick off is at 19:30.
