Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Brandon Petersen was pleased to make his Absa Premiership return in midweek after nearly a year-and-a-half's absence.
Petersen played in Ajax's 1-0 loss to Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium.
The 21-year-old has featured earlier this season, albeit in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge, which serves as a reserve league to the topflight.
"Obviously all the glory goes to God because its only by his grace that I am able to be playing again," Petersen told his club's website.
"It was an exciting game for me as you know I didn’t play in a while, so getting that 90 minutes under my belt felt good. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy because Maritzburg needed the points, but I think the team did fairly well.
"At the end of the night, Maritzburg walked away with the three points. Personally I feel good to be back again, but obviously there are still things I need to improve on. In time it will happen."
Petersen was previously sidelined after tearing knee ligaments following a collision with Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Anthony Laffor on December 20, 2014 at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
