Arrows have been unlucky - Mngqithi



Lamontville Golden Arrows coach Manqoba Mngqithi says his side have been unlucky in their last encounters and paid the price for the poor defending.

Mngqithi, who have had just a single win in the five games in charge of Arrows since his return to the club last month, says there were unlucky turn of events in both of their last two matches – a home defeat to Bloemfontein Celtic and a 2-2 draw away at SuperSport United.

“We changed a lot of players for the game against Celtic and our performance was outstanding on the day and we created more than enough chances to win the match but were just unlucky,” insisted Mngqithi.

“The goal we conceded is still a mystery to me even though I had a chance to watch it several times. From this performance we went to our game against SuperSport United with hope that things were beginning to come together.”

Arrows allow a late equaliser to their hosts in the 2-2 draw last weekend, which Mngqithi said came as a result of bad defending.

“We were also very unfortunate to be forced to change our starting line up as result of Siyanda Zwane being injured during our warm-up and being forced to play Thami Mkhize, who I think had a wonderful match with the exception of a lapse of concentration for their first goal.?

“There are a lot of positives that we can take from these matches and hope that sooner rather than later we will be out of that danger zone.”

Arrows are in potential relegation quagmire with just 10 points from their first 12 games so this season. They next host Moroka Swallows on Tuesday.
