Golden Arrows suffered their second consecutive defeat in Harry Gwala Stadium as they were beaten 3-2 by Maritzburg United.
Abafana Bes’thende were coming from a 1-0 defeat to another KwaZulu Natal side AmaZulu FC, last week.
Arrows coach Mandla Ncikazi was not impressed with his defence, which let in three goals.
Ncikazi revealed that their defence was the weakest link in their match against Maritzburg United.
“We are just disappointed that today we conceeded the way we conceded, nomarlly our strength is our defending. Today I think it was our weakness,” he reflected.
“Sometines your strength becomes your weakness, I thought we were weak from that department. You concede from a throw in, don’t control the first ball it bounces, they score and then you chase the game from behind to half time.
“Try change things around and try and improve what I thought was not working well, we changed the structure a bit. I thought we were more imposing better than the first half, but even first half I don’t think we were threatened.
“Except the shot where they scored, I can’t recall of any other chance they created,” said Ncikazi.
