Lamontville Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen said his players should be credited for fighting spirit against tougher physical opponents in their weekend win over Baroka.

Writing his column on the club’s website, Larsen said the doggedness of the squad had shown through as they moved to within touching distance of a top eight place after a 3-2 win over the struggling Limpopo side at the KwaMashu Stadium.

“This was a win at all cost game for both teams and we are happy to have come out victorious. Difficult conditions did not make it any easier and to make matters worse we had to defend long balls for the entire match.

“Not an easy task considering we are not one of the bigger teams physically. We should have taken more than just the single goal into the break, but it was a special one nonetheless. (Siphelele) Magubane put us in the lead with a long range effort for his first goal in the premier league.

“Second half was more of the same as we were not clinical enough on the break, our Achilles heel this season. We still managed to score two more through (Lerato) Lamola and a sublime (Kudakwashe) Mahachi finish.

“Credit to the players again for their fighting spirit and commitment,” he added.
