Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen says to be disappointed is an understatement following his side's 2-2 draw with relegation-threatened Polokwane City on Sunday.
Arrows looked on course for a second straight win after beating Ajax Cape Town 1-0, but conceded a last-gasp equaliser from Puleng Tlolane at Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.
The result leaves Abafana Bes'thende in 10th place on the Premiership table with 27 points from 23 games - three points above the drop zone with seven matches left.
"Saying we’re disappointed would be an understatement," Larsen told his club's website.
"Another strong showing from our team but very little to show in terms of not getting maximum points.
"We are very proud of the commitment and performance level displayed by the team.
"To concede an equaliser with seconds remaining feels like a loss but we will take lots of positives from the performance.
"When you concede to a goal like Tlolane’s, you’ve got to give credit to the player and accept the result although we knew we done enough to win the match.
"Under different circumstances we would probably be saying it’s a good point away from home but not in this case."
Larsen's side next host title contenders Orlando Pirates in the league at Princess Magogo Stadium on March 17.
