Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen says that Nkosinathi Mthiyane's form at left-back has helped negate the absence of Lehlohonolo Nonyane.

Mthiyane, who is on loan at Arrows from Orlando Pirates, has been a consistent performer for the Durban team in 2017, since arriving from Chippa United mid-season.

"I have been very impressed with Mthiyane. It's a player we know well even from his days at AmaZulu. So, he has come and solved a big problem for us," Larsen told Goal.

"He has come in and done really well and we are happy for him and we are happy for the club. Like I said one of the problems we had in that position has been the injury to (Lehlohonolo) Nonyane," he added.

Larsen went on to admit that he is not sure if the KwaZulu-Natal born Mthiyane will remain at Absafana bes Thende beyond the current campaign, while he is hopeful that Nonyane will be back in action soon.

"In terms of wanting to keep him, I can't answer that because he is not a Golden Arrows players. He is an Orlando Pirates player. It will be up to them to decide what they want to do with him.

"Nonyane is still recovering doing his rehab. He had a hernia operation so he will probably still be out a few weeks, but I am hoping he can play the last five or even seven games of the league."
