Cape Town - Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo has credited coaching staff member Rowen Fernandez for his recent impressive run of form.

The first-choice Pirates stopper had an outstanding outing in the 2-0 win over Mamelodi Sundowns in the Nedbank Cup quarte-final clash at the Lucas 'Masterpieces' Moripe Stadium on Saturday.

The 25-year-old helped keep his team’s hopes of silverware alive as the Buccaneers advanced to the cup semi-finals.

"I feel great but obviously there is still more work to be done," Mhlongo told KickOff.

"I cannot rest on my laurels thinking okay two man of the matches in three games is something. I have to keep growing to be where I want to be. I just have to keep working hard.

"Credit must be given to my goalkeeper coach who has been pushing me throughout, the technical team and the guys who have been supporting. I need to keep working hard."

The Buccaneers have been drawn against Free State Stars in the first semi-final while Baroka FC will take on SuperSport United in the other tie.
