Golden Arrows coach Serame Letsoaka believes his three strikers Rodney Ramagalela, Mwape Musonda and Mabhuti Kenyeza will cause opposition teams plenty of problems this season.
Abafana Bes'thende marked their return to the topflight with a 1-0 victory over University of Pretoria at Chatsworth Stadium on Sunday.
New signing Ramagalela pounced from close range in the 39th minute after fellow recruit Musonda muscled his way into the box by dispossing Willem Mwedihanga.
"They are showing good signs and if you look at the three strikers we have,Ramagalela will give you the pace and Musonda will give you the strength on the ball and he is quite strong as well," says Letsoaka.
"We have Mabhuti who can play anyway you want him to be, so I'm happy with a striking force and it gives us hope."
Meanwhile, Letsoaka was delighted to start the campaign on the front foot, especially considering Arrows goalkeeper Maximilian Mbaeva was sent off in the 22nd minute for handling Lennox Bacela's shot outside the box.
"It is always great that to get the first win and it motivates the guys," says the former SuperSport United assistant coach.
"Going forward, I think we will go into our second game [against Jomo Cosmos] having more confidence and they will able to play a little better.
"But on the game itself, it was quite difficult to play with one man down because it was now difficult to play the type of football we want to play. So we had to make sure that we're better organised so that we're able to to defend properly and try to catch them on a break."
