Mandla Ncikazi’s mission is to make sure that his team Lamontville Golden Arrows continue to do the business on the field. 
The Arrows coach led Abafana Bes’thende to a goalless draw with log-leaders Mamelodi Sundowns in a DStv Premiership match at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Wednesday evening. 
“Tough match, I thought we deserved to get all the points if you check the amount of chances we created against Sundowns. I’m proud of the team. We played as a team. We played to the instructions, stuck to the game plan,” Ncikazi said. 
Ncikazi added that they are not concerned about what people say as they are only interested in what they can do on the field. 
“We are still on course. We are running our own race. All the noise that is happening around other teams we don’t concentrate on that,” he said. 
“We concentrate on our team, try and finish at the highest finish that the club has ever achieved. We are on course with that. There is a lot of football to be played. We played two draws and one win away. I’m just proud to be part of the team that excels.” 
Next up for Arrows is a Durban derby against an in-form AmaZulu at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Clermont on Saturday (15h00). Arrows have 43 points from 25 games while Usuthu have 47 in 25 matches.
