Clinton Larsen hopes Gabadinho Mhango can solve problems after Golden Arrows’ missed chances against Bidvest Wits

Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen says his side should have won their Absa Premiership clash against Bidvest Wits yesterday, but they missed a string of chances and went down 1-0.
Larsen hopes the arrival of Hellings ‘Gabadinho’ Mhango on loan from Wits will help unlock teams in the final third.
“We don't have another player there; Mabhudi Khenyeza, Rodney Ramagalela and Mwape Musonda are out and out strikers. [Kudakwashe] Mahachi is not a number ten, he’s a winger; so it is a position where we’re lacking at the moment.”
Arrows lost 1-0 at Chatsworth Stadium, their fourth League defeat in a row as they drop out of the top eight and Orlando Pirates leapfrog them after beating University of Pretoria.
“You can play well but when you don't stick the ball over the line... Today we had four, five great chances,” Larsen complained after the game.
“Mabhudi Khenyeza’s header [hit the upright], Ramagalela [denied by Moeneeb Josephs from six metres] and Mahlatse Makudubela hit the crossbar. I mean four, five very good opportunities …”
Former Bloemfontein Celtic striker Mhango is set to start training with Arrows on Monday.
Defender Chris Katjiukua will definitely not be training tomorrow, however – he suffered concussion during yesterday’s match and joins the injury list that includes long-term casualties Thembela Sikhakhane, Philani Zikalala and Nkanyiso Cele.
