It was Harrison's first game as Arrows boss since switching loyalties from Chippa United, and the Englishman admits his side require serious improvement.

"We have got a lot to do from top to bottom, and there's not much time as we have a massive game against (Mpumalanga Black) Aces (on Saturday)," Harrison said.

"We weren't physically or mentally strong enough tonight. We were naive and allowed them too much time and space.

"In the first 45 minutes they ripped us to pieces. 

"We have got to get sharper and wiser, and quickly."
