Golden Arrows aim to get a win over Kaizer Chiefs

Serame Letsoaka's men have beaten all the three clubs from Pretoria in the Absa Premiership this season and just a week ago stunned Orlando Pirates with a 2-0 victory at Orlando Stadium.
Tonight, eager to upset another giant from Soweto, they face a Chiefs side that were well beaten by Pirates at the weekend.
"If we win, then we shall say that we successfully conquered Pretoria and Soweto," Arrows coach Letsoaka said yesterday ahead of the match at FNB Stadium.
"It's going to be a difficult game. Chiefs will come fired up for the game, but the advantage for us is that we did not play at the weekend. So, we will have fresher legs," he added.
Letsoaka, who plans to use the speed of his players to unsettle the Amakhosi defence, faces a good friend in Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela, but says they have not spoken much in the past week.
"We talk a lot, but we have not spoken in the last week or so.
"Steve will always concentrate on being organised, especially in defence. But we have studied them well and we have seen areas that we can exploit.
"We are going to do a lot of running and put them under pressure. We can get a point, but achieving three points is not entirely impossible.
"Our defending in the victory over Pirates was poor. We need to improve," he added.
Komphela has called for a response from his players after the disappointing display in the 3-1 defeat to the Buccaneers.
"Arrows have been doing very well. We are aware of their strengths and weaknesses. They are quite a fast team. If you give them too much space then they will start to access the space.
"We have seen a couple of their matches and know what we are up against, and we need to respond."
Seventh-placed Arrows have lost just once away from home this season in four matches, while AmaKhosi, who are sixth on the table, have lost once in four matches at home - a record they need to be worried about.
The clubs are level on 14 points going into the clash.
Tonight's other games are Black Aces vs Jomo Cosmos and Maritzburg Utd vs Polokwane City.
