Coaches comments – Platinum Stars

Having four players suspended for this match was always going to pose a challenge but the players who came in stepped up and delivered. We looked strong in the first half and deservedly went 2-0 up through Mutizwa then Venter. We conceded early in the 2nd half but showed good character to keep positive and […]

Coaches comment – Kaizer Chiefs

We got off to a flyer which is something we discussed pre match as we needed to try impose ourselves on our opponent so as to try and get an early goal. We managed to do that after Lamola put us in the lead but we should have killed the game off after Castro’s red […]

Coaches comments on Free State Stars game

It took an unfortunate own goal to for us to draw a game we were in full command of. After a very good 1st half display we were disappointed not to go into the halftime break at least a goal or two to the good. We took the lead through Magubane and once again did […]

Coaches comments – Cape Town City

This match was all about trying to get 3 points and nothing else. We had no intention of trying to outplay a quality City team but what we were looking for was defensive discipline and a strong fighting spirit of which our players gave both. With 5 games to go its all about points especially […]

Coaches comments – Orlando Pirates

What can I say, referees are human and make mistakes. But it’s difficult to accept a case of mistaken identity especially when players, coaches as well as linesman are all telling the referee he is about to send off the wrong player. He acknowledges the advice of the linesman yet still sends off the wrong player. […]

Coaches comments – Polokwane City

Saying we’re disappointed would be an understatement. Another strong showing from our team but very little to show in terms of not getting maximum points. We are very proud of the commitment and performance level displayed by the team. To concede an equalizer with seconds remaining feels like a loss but we will take lots […]

Coaches comments vs Ajax Cape Town

We started the match positively and settled into an early rhythm. Our shape was good and we looked dangerous in attack. Our attacking quartet of Lamola,Magubane,Ndwandwe and Venter constantly took the game to our opponents and we were rewarded when Lamola was brought down inside the box. Mzava made no mistake from the spot and […]

Comments on AmaZulu game

In football you don’t always get what you deserve as was the case against Amazulu. Credit also goes to our opponents who fought hard for their victory. After going into the lead we needed to get the second to make their task all the more difficult but let them back in, less than 10 minutes […]

Coaches comments – Baroka FC

After a positive start where we maintained good possession and arrived with relative ease in the final 3rd, we just could not find the final pass. We conceded against the run of play through a defensive error but maintained our composure to draw level before the break ,through a well taken Venter goal. Baroka had […]

Coaches comments, Chippa United

In a game where neither team created any clear scoring chances it was important to at least take a point home. We were organized defensively and showed good attacking intent, but could not carve out any clear scoring chances. We are happy with the discipline and commitment shown by our players.

Coaches comments – SuperSport United

Our players showed good determination and discipline to beat a stubborn SuperSport team. I feel we were good value for our win yesterday as we kept a strong structure which was complimented with some great attacking play. Buthelezi was outstanding on his debut as he partnered Mngwengwe with aplomb. Another debutant, Zuke was also outstanding […]


First half was probably the worst I’ve seen the team play since I joined. We were awful from back to front. After some strong words at half time and the introduction of Venter, we started to impose ourselves on our opponents but the damage was done in the first half as we trailed 2-0. We […]

Golden Arrows vs Maritzburg United

This was definitely one of our better performances of the first round.We dominated the first half but could not turn that dominance into goals. The players carried out our tactical approach with aplomb. The second half was a lot more open with both teams attacking at will. We pushed hard for a winner and at […]

Golden Arrows vs Mamelodi Sundowns

So disappointed for the players that they got no reward for the performance they gave. We are proud of the efforts they continue to give regardless of the result. They went pound for pound with the best team in the country and at times it seemed as if there was a big yellow bus in […]

Free State Stars vs Golden Arrows

We definitely deserved something out of this game after a very strong second half showing. We struggled playing into a strong wind first half but used the conditions to our advantage in the second. We gave ourselves an uphill task after conceding after only two minutes of the restart. We threw everything at Stars with […]

Golden Arrows vs Cape Town City

Disappointed would be an understatement. Scoring two good team goals then conceding through a penalty and a deflected equalizer was a tough way to drop two valuable points. We weren’t at our best for sure but neither were our opponents who did very little to trouble Gumede in goals. More points dropped at home so […]

Orlando Pirates vs Golden Arrows

Another positive result on the road for the club. It’s never easy playing at Orlando but our players showed no fear and gave their all to make sure we returned with a point. Gumede made three good saves to keep us in the game but we also had opportunities which Mabokwane did well to save. […]

SuperSport United vs Golden Arrows

Supersport took the lead quite fortuitously when Bilankulu slipped because of the soft underfoot conditions. We had the first chance of the game though ,when Mutizwa chipped Williams only for the ball to narrowly go over the crossbar. Conceding the second goal just before the break made our task all the more difficult. Chasing the […]

Golden Arrow vs Orlando Pirates

A typical cut throat cup tie with both teams playing attacking football. After a very positive opening 15 minutes Pirates then bossed the remainder of the first half with Qalinge running riot. We only managed to carve out one clear scoring chance to Pirates 3-4 chances of which they took one. After the break with […]

Golden Arrows vs Polokwane City

Coming twice from behind against a stubborn Polokwane outfit showed great character on the part of our players. The result is not ideally what we wanted but once again we showed unbelievable fighting spirit. Our performance lacked a bit of spark but it’s understandable considering we played 3 days ago in Polokwane and felt the […]

Baroka FC vs Golden Arrows

After a positive opening 15-20 minutes we conceded against the run of play with a horrendous defensive error. The goal somehow rattled us and gave Baroka the momentum leading to the break. With a few adjustments at half time we came out and played with more belief and showed greater attacking impetus. All three second […]

Golden Arrows vs Chippa United

Our first half performance was not good enough although we still created a few chances. After changing the system and making substitutions we dominated the 2nd half and should have wrapped up the game, looking at the number of chances we missed. It’s good that we still unbeaten after 7 games but disappointing to have […]

Kaizer Chiefs vs Golden Arrows

We asked our players to play with belief and that’s exactly what they done. They went to FNB and took on Kaizer Chiefs without fear. Playing two consecutive away games and picking up four points has been a good return for the club.Once again I have to praise our players for their commitment and dedication.

Platinum Stars vs Golden Arrows

As we had told our players, this Platinum Stars team is o lot stronger than the table suggests. Full of experience and quality we had a very difficult time keeping them quiet. We had some good attacking moments throughout but were not decisive enough. We got our first clean sheet in 5 games, something we […]

Golden Arrows vs Amazulu FC

This was an entertaining match for both sets of supporters,with both teams attacking each other from the onset. Again we played with good intensity and our desire to get to our opponents box was very strong. Still we were wasteful on the breaks and could have scored a few more goals with better decision making. […]

Bidvest Wits vs Golden Arrows

We produced a good attacking display with plenty of pace and good movement in attack. We struggled at times to deal aerially with Gamal and later Rodgers but did just about enough to get over the line. Our players deserve all the credit for the energy and commitment shown throughout.

Golden Arrows vs Bloem Celtic

A disappointing result when you look at the chances we created and the way we dominated Celtics, especially in the second half. Another good defensive display by the team with Mzava and Mngwengwe outstanding in central defense. We need to start converting our chances in order to turn these draws into wins though.. Overall we […]

Ajax Cape Town vs Golden Arrows

As usual this was a very difficult fixture. I think in the end a draw was a fair result although we created more clear cut chances. It was a game that did not flow with a lot of stop-starts. Taking into consideration the circumstances of not having both coaches on the bench, coach Vusumuzi Vilakazi […]

Bidvest Wits vs Golden Arrows

A fiery encounter to say the least. We came into this game on the back of a good pre-season hoping to put in a competitive performance. I think we gave as good as we got against a very strong Wits team. Very happy once again with the fighting spirit displayed by our team. Once again […]
