Cape Town - Golden Arrows head coach Clinton Larson believes his team are in a good position to claim the Nedbank Cup and achieve a Top 8 Absa Premiership finish. 

Larson said both targets are achievable and neither of the two takes pre-eminence over the other.

“Right now, our priority is to do well on both sides. We’re in a position to do that," said Larson.

"We’re just one win away from making the Nedbank Cup finals and four wins from securing a spot in the top eight and honestly, two wins a maybe a draw would be enough for the top eight spot.

"I think both these targets are achievable."

Arrows suffered a 2-0 defeat against title chasing Mamelodi Sundowns and despite the result, Larson is proud of the performance of his players on the night.

"I’m very proud of my team. We played very well on the day and created a few chances as well," said Larsen.

"It’s not often that Sundowns goalkeeper (Denis Onyango) gets the man-of-the-match. It’s often the other way round.

"Right now we stand as good a chance as Pirates to make the top eight."

In their quest for the top eight finish Arrows have to face Kaizer Chiefs, Baroka FC, Cape Town City and Orlando Pirates in their remaining PSL fixtures. 

Meanwhile, Arrows will welcome the Buccaneers to King Zwelithini Stadium in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals on Saturday, May 20.
