Larsen focusing on bigger picture

Premiership

Larsen felt the result against the Lions of the North was not a reflection of the game and believes his team was the better side, especially in the second half.

"It's a frustrating result, I think we were the better side especially after we conceded. We manage to bounce back from behind and dominated the game, and defensively we managed to stop their good attack," Larsen said.

Larsen then emphasised the importance of avoiding defeats in their last six league matches in order to survive, as they are sitting in 14th position just four points ahead of bottom-club Maritzburg United.

"In our last games we need to avoid losses, it's either win or draw, we want to keep this team up and also try to win the Nedbank Cup," he said.

"We've played nine games under a new coach including the Nedbank Cup, we managed to beat [Mamelodi] Sundowns which shows that we can beat anyone on our good day, there's no way we can be relegated," he insisted.

"We need to look at the positive side, this team has improved since January. When I joined the team was on 11 points if I'm not mistaken and now we're on 21. It took previous coaches 17 games to get to that 11-point mark, which shows our improvement in a short space of time."
