Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Brandon Petersen pleased with Absa Premiership return against Maritzburg

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.
