DURBAN – Dangerous when wounded, so the saying goes. And the language aficionado that is Steve Komphela knows only too well just how true that saying often rings in the game if football.
And so it will be with the utmost of care and caution that the Golden Arrows coach will lead his team against an Orlando Pirates side that is so against the ropes many would advise he should go in for the kill.
“Pirates will be very difficult,” Komphela said of the team they visit on Wednesday for an Absa Premiership clash at Orlando Stadium.
Though obvious, it was pointed out to Komphela that he is in charge of a team high on confidence following their 2-1 win over Chippa United on Saturday and are about to play a limping Pirates side that side seemingly allergic to victory.
Surely he should fancy his team’s chances of success against opponents who are winless in the last four matches?
