Mandla Ncikazi happy with Golden Arrows' turnaround


Ncikazi insisted Arrows are more competitive having reached the semifinals of the Nedbank Cup and shifting their focus to fighting for the top eight.

"We are having a good season, even though we are not where we want to be as a club but we are happy with the way our players have responded to changes in the club from Clinton Larsen to now Steve Komphela, we are a very competitive side now," Ncikazi said on Durban Youth Radio.

Arrows host Cape Town City on Saturday and Benni McCarthy's side are coming into the match after a very poor display against Kaizer Chiefs, but Ncikazi believes past results won't mean anything.

"You don't become a bad team overnight, Cape Town City won't be an easy task. Benni McCarthy has done extremely well for them as a coach, we know what we have to do on the day," he added.

"The whole week we've been focusing on the technical side, profiling them and seeing what we can improve from our past performances.

"We recognise our supporters. With due respect we urge them to keep on supporting us, we need them especially at this stage of the season, we believe with them anything is possible."
