Cape Town - Steve Komphela believes his Golden Arrows team is unique in terms of the style of play they excel at and he is eager to maximise their talents.

Abafana Bes'thende have improved as the Absa Premiership has progressed this season and they currently find themselves in fourth position in the standings.

Komphela's charges raised a few eyebrows at the weekend as they pulled off a surprise 3-2 win over Mamelodi Sundowns at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium where Knox Mutizwa netted a brace after Danny Phiri's strike on the hour mark.

"What we are playing at Arrows we cannot play at any environment because the quality and the kind of players we have at Arrows are different. So you have to play to the strength of the players you have," said Komphela.

"When you go to any other team, you might not have a [Ntsako] Makhubela, you won't have a [Lindokuhle] Mtshali, a [Micahel] Gumede and Mutizwa."

Arrows' next Absa Premiership encounter will be away at Baroka FC on November 23.
