Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen was pleased that his team finally got on the scoresheet after going four games without a goal.
Arrows managed their first win in their last six matches as they beat Polokwane City 2-1 at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday evening.
The Durban-based side had to fight their way back from 1-0 down as Gladwin Shitolo and Rodney Ramagalela netted on either side of half-time.
Larsen was relieved that his team broke their goal scoring drought but concedes that their finishing is still not quite where it should be.
"I thought it was another one of those days - chance after chance, after chance going abegging - but it [the goals] had to come and the result had to come," he said.
"We've been working very hard, and I'm just happy that the boys got a reward for their performance today."
The former Bloemfontein Celtic coach also revealed why he handed new striker Hellings Mhango a start ahead of Ramagalela.
"'Rama' was meant to start today but Mhango hasn't played for over a month, so we want to build his match fitness up and we thought there's no better way than starting him to build it up," added Larsen.
"'Rama' works so hard at training and we knew that with the tiring Polokwane defense, with his pace, if he gets a chance there's a good chance that he could finish it."
