Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs veteran Siphiwe Tshabalala has credited his happy family life for his impressive form this season.

Tshabalala turned back the clock this campaign with his strong performances and eye-catching displays of trickery, while playing an important role in Amakhosi's season.

With eight goals in all competitions, Tshabalala is currently the club's top goalscorer and the former Bafana Bafana star says his rich vein of form is down to his support base.

"I am happy at home," he told his club's website.

"My wife Bokang is very supportive, she's really there for me. My son, Owethu Temo, also brings me tremendous joy," said the 32-year-old.

"I shouldn't forget my team-mates as well. We support each other a lot," said Tshabalala. 

When asked what he thought his best year for the club was, unsurprisingly, Shabba said it was the 2008/09 season when Chiefs won the MTN8, and on a personal level, cleaned up at the club's award evening at the end of the campaign.

Amakhosi are currently fifth in the Premiership, and with two games to play, they still have a chance of finishing as high as third.

The Glamour Boys next face Platinum Stars at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Wednesday evening in their penultimate PSL encounter.

Kick off is at 19:30.
