Cape Town - Golden Arrows head coach Steve Komphela has urged midfielder Nduduzo Sibiya to be more consistent, the mentor saying he is "searching" for the player in parts of the game.

The 24-year-old Sibiya received the Nedbank Cup Young Player of the Tournament accolade during the 2016/17 PSL awards but has failed to kick on, finding himself struggling to make the Abafana Bes'thende team this season.

Komphela told the IOL website: "I'm happy with uSulu Sibiya but he needs to be consistent.

"My only challenge with a youthful team is that they must perform consistently.

"Sibiya can't show us his brilliance at training and give you 30 minutes in a game situation and the rest of the 60 minutes you are searching for him.

"We want them to be consistent because he is a hell of a good player. He's got talent, he can hit the ball and he can play on the left, inside and score."

Besides his dribbling skills, Komphela says Sibiya needs to add more goals to his game if he is to become a top player.

Komphela continued: "I need more of these top goals that he normally scores.

"It is his trademark when he cuts inside and hits a rocket but he must be consistent."

Golden Arrows' next fixture after the international break will be against AmaZulu on September 14.
