Golden Arrows defender Nkosinathi Sibisi says he has progressed this season due to "being disciplined".

The 24-year-old was in fine form for Abafana Bes'thende this season prior to the enforced break.

Speaking to IOL website, the right-back also credited coach Steve Komphela and reserve team coach Vusumuzi Vilakazi for being key in his development.

He said: "Being disciplined and knowing what you want out of the game has been key to my progress.

"As much as we play football for the love of the game, there are people that depend on our hard work in order for their lives to change. It wasn't easy but sometimes perseverance helps."

Sibisi added: "Having someone as coach Steve generates a lot of positivity. Since he also played the same position that I am playing, he helps me a lot.

"But not to just mention him alone, my academy coaches, which include coach Kanu (Vusumuzi Vilakazi), helped me a lot."

Sibisi came up through the ranks at Arrows having been promoted from the youth academy.
