Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Serame Letsoaka praised his team's first-half display that saw them wine 2-1 over SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Both Matome Mathiane and Kudakwashe Mahachi struck in the opening 45 minutes to power Arrows to victory away from home, despite a late consolation goal from Kingston Nkhatha.

After their promotion to the Premiership last season, Arrows have impressed with three wins, two losses and two draws to occupy sixth place in the league.

Having left his role at Matsatsantsa as assistant coach, Letsoaka was magnanimous in victory, saying the game could have gone either way in the end.

"It could have been that is a draw, or a result where they catch up or where we could have scored one more goal on the counter," Letsoaka said after the game.

"But I am happy with the three points. The game could have gone either way and in the end it was up to our boys to keep focus until the end of the game.

"It was key for us that our dominance in the first-half resulted in the two goals we scored before the break."
