Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen wants his side to be more clinical to boost their chances of securing a top eight place in the Absa Premiership.

The KwaZulu-Natal side most recently played to a 1-1 draw with Free State Stars, where Larsen feels they could have won the game if they were more clinical in front of goal.

Arrows were hoping to make it two wins in a row having defeated Cape Town City in the previous match.

They are in 12th position in the Premiership standings and their next assignment is against an in-form Mamelodi Sundowns.  

“It took an unfortunate own goal for us to draw the game. We were in full command after a very good first half display,” Larsen told the club's official website.

“We were disappointed not to go into the break at least a goal or two up.

“We once again failed to put the game to bed with a second goal having taken the lead through Siphelele Magubane and as usual, the situation came back to haunt us with an own goal.

“We pushed for a winner and came close on several occasions, but it wasn’t to be. Two points dropped, but lots of positives to take forward.”
