Larsen remains positive despite log position


Polokwane City head coach Clinton Larsen remains optimistic that the fortunes will change for his club, despite facing a monumental task of saving the Absa Premiership status.

City currently occupy the bottom of the log position with four matches remaining, following a 2-0 defeat by SuperSport United on Wednesday.

But Larsen was full of praise for his players despite the loss to United.

“It’s another case of all of the ball but none of the points,” said Larsen reflecting on their 17th defeat of the season.

“Similar performance to the one against Kaizer Chiefs in terms of our ball domination. We may not have created as many chances as we did against Kaizer Chiefs but I must say we totally out-played (SuperSport) like we did against Kaizer Chiefs.

“We know what it is the problem, we have worked on it, we have discussed it and unfortunately we have not defended better but you know still so many positives to take from the performance. I mean there were times I was actually enjoying my team play, such was the brand of football they were displaying so on that note I am very pleased,” he said.

“The boys are playing with so much confidence, you will never say it’s a team that’s bottom of the table if you are watching the team and that’s something we can take moving forward.”

City will host Highlands Park in their next league match at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Saturday, 22 August.
