Larsen: Arrows will come out guns blazing at us

Chippa United coach Clinton Larsen is expecting a fired-up Golden Arrows side when the teams lock horns in the Absa Premiership on Saturday.

Arrows are still smarting from a 5-0 drubbing in their last league encounter against Bloemfontein Celtic.

Larsen though says Abafana Bes’thende will be looking to bounce to back and the Chilli Boys will have to be wary about their opponents.

The Chippa mentor said, according to the IOL website: “We know that it won’t be easy against Arrows away from home.

"They want to bounce back after their result against Bloemfontein Celtic.

"They are a lot better than that. They will come out guns blazing at us.

"We are in for a difficult encounter. We want to collect as many points as possible in the early stages of the season."

The clash will see Larsen come up against Arrows for the first time since leaving the KZN club last December.

Larsen was the head coach of Arrows for three years before his departure but he says it will be business as usual.

“It will be not the first time I come up against Arrows. There will be no emotions," Larsen said.

"I have a job at hand with Chippa United. Yes, I had good three years with Arrows but that is all behind now."

Chippa United have drawn their first two games of the season, both with 1-1 scorelines, against Stellenbosch FC and defending league champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
