If Lamontville Golden Arrows are to upset Mamelodi Sundowns in their Telkom Knockout semi-final tomorrow, then they are going to have to take their chances against a Brazilians defence that is not easily breached.That is exactly what they did in the 3-2 league win over the same opponents earlier this month, when a brace of goals from Knox Mutizwa, including one from the penalty-spot, set them on their way to victory.The goals took Mutizwa’s tally to seven in nine starts in all competitions this season as he confirms his status as one of the leading forwards in the Premier Soccer League.Able to score both scintillating long-range efforts and tap-ins, he is vital to the way that Golden Arrows play and will return to the club after a spending the FIFA International window with the Zimbabwe national team.Born in Bulawayo, the 26-year-old started his career with hometown club Highlanders and idolised Cristiano Ronaldo growing up.After starring for Highlanders he won a move to BidVest Wits ahead of the 2016-17 season, but it is fair to say the Johannesburg side were never convinced of his talent.Instead he was sent on loan to Golden Arrows that campaign and netted in his second match, a 2-1 home win over Bloemfontein Celtic.He finished the campaign with five goals and his switch to Durban was made permanent, having done enough to convince club hierarchy that he could be a lead striker for them.Mutizwa was used mostly off the bench the next season but still managed seven goals, before he became a regular starter in 2018-19, his haul off 11 goals making plenty sit up and take notice.He is well on his way to beating that mark in this campaign and has become the focal-point of the Arrows attack.In all he has 30 goals in 66 starts for Arrows and is the man Sundowns will have to watch if they are to advance to the Telkom Knockout decider.
