Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen says while Orlando Pirates have struggled in front of goal so far this season, they still remain a huge threat given their attacking brand of football and number of goalscoring chances they create in all their games. 

"I do think they've been a bit goal-shy, like a lot of teams are, but in terms of the intent they've shown in their attacking game, they've really been a big threat going forward,” Larsen told the media.

Abafana Bes'thende visit the Sea Robbers on Tuesday, and Larsen has been hugely impressed with their opponents this season.

"There are a lot of games I've watched this season that they should have comfortably won had they taken their chances,” Larsen said.

Bucs sit in seventh place, having drawn five and lost three of their 10 league matches.

"I do think the points they have picked up is a true reflection of how strong this Pirates team is. For me at the moment, one of the strongest teams in the PSL,” concluded Larsen.
