After securing a point away against Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Versfeld on Wednesday evening, Golden Arrows coach Mandla Ncikazi has told the media that they are not entertaining the title chase talk.
Abafana Bes’thende have now collected five out of possible nine points away in a space of a week, having beaten SuperSport United and drew against Chippa United and Sundowns.
Ncikazi applauded his players for matching Sundowns in all departments as they look to finish in a best possible position on the log.
“You are playing against the African Champions and when you make them look that normal, we’ll always be proud of our team.”
“At least it’s a good base into the next match (against AmaZulu), we are still on course, we are running our own race and all the noise that is happening around with other teams.
“We don’t concentrate on that, we are concentrating on our team to try and finish at the highest position that the club has ever achieved,” said Ncikazi.
The 52-year-old coach believes there is still a lot to play for and any position can be possibly achieved by his side.
“If it happens that it takes us to Africa let it be, if it happens that it takes us to the top of the log, why not? There is a lot of football to be played.”
