Free State Stars midfielder Angelo Kerspuy says he is working hard as he awaits an opportunity for regain his place in the team.
The 28-year-old received to yellow cards in quick succession in the club’s second game of the season last year, and has not featured for Stars since.
Kerspuy feels the red card was a turning point in his season, leading to his lack of game-time at the club.
“I don’t really have words to describe how I feel,” Kerspuy told his club’s official website.
“I feel like the two yellow cards against Platinum Stars were definitely the turning point in my season.
“I still regret the second yellow card. I feel that if I didn’t get that red card I might have played a few more games.”
Despite being stuck on the sidelines, the Stars defender says he will continue to work hard to win the favour of coach Kinnah Phiri as he eyes a return to action in 2015.
“It has been a bit frustrating but also encouraging for me, in the sense that it has made me work harder,” he said.
“I am still working hard and I am going to wait for my opportunity. I don’t know when that opportunity will come but I am working hard.
“It is very important to stay positive during times like these. I did have a small injury recently but for most of the season I have not been injured, I am just looking for a little more game-time.”
Kerspuy will hope to be in action in his side’s opening League fixture of 2015 when they take on SuperSport United on Wednesday, 11 February.
