Cape Town - Golden Arrows head coach Steve Komphela
is happy with the depth of his squad as talented players struggle to
get into the starting line-up.
Abafana Bes'thende beat Polokwane City 2-1 on Saturday to move up to sixth position in the Absa Premiership standings.
What makes the KZN club's good start to the season impressive is that
the likes of Sanele Mathenjwa, Sphelele Magubane, Nkanyiso Mngwengwe,
Maximillian Mbaeva and Musa Bilankulu have had limited opportunities in
the starting team.
While those players mentioned have been out injured or suspended they
have struggled to get back into the Arrows side as Komphela explains.
Komphela said in quotes published on KickOff: "Lot of
talented players, when a player comes from an injury it very difficult
to click, and we play a very high intensity game, in position we play,
out of position we press, so you need someone who is sharp.
"It not easy to reach that level, so some of them are still getting
there. I wish at some stage we can have a team of Magubane, Chonco and
all those who are not getting game time but it not easy.
"Now it's a question of giving them confidence as soon as they are ready and they can complete 90 minutes, we can throw them.
"Those players you can pick from their touch in training that they still need lot of work because of match fitness."
