Cape Town - Clinton Larsen praised Golden Arrows' defensive showing in the 1-0 victory against Chippa United, but admitted they they should have scored more.

The Kwa-Zulu Natal outfit continued their fine start to the league campaign, as Vuyani Ntanga's solitary strike earned them their fourth victory in six league games. The result saw Arrows go level on points at the top of the table with Kaizer Chiefs, who boast a superior goal difference.

"This was always going to be a mammoth challenge in terms of our organization as a team," Larsen told the club's website.

"Chippa is a team obsessed with possession and very good at it so we had to be very disciplined.

"We also knew that the way they played would also present us with opportunities to score and that's exactly how things unfolded," he added.

Arrows were gifted numerous opportunities to extend their lead throughout the encounter, with Ntanga missing a second-half penalty prior to opening the deadlock.

"We are proud of the effort and good defensive organisation, but disappointed that we did not score more than the solitary goal," Larsen added.

"Our players wore their hearts on their sleeves and that's all we can ask."

Arrows will look to make amends for their league loss against Orlando Pirates, when they face the Buccaneers in a Telkom Knockout tie on Sunday, 23 October.
