Highlands Park attacking midfielder Peter Shalulile says an operation that he underwent in August last year has been the reason for his surprise absence from action this season.
The Namibian was expected to play a key role this season after scoring seven goals in 12 starts during his first year with the club.
The classy 23-year-old was also instrumental in Highlands' promotion play-off game against Mbombela as they earned safe passage to the Absa Premiership but has since been missing in action.
“I had an ankle operation in August after I got injured during pre-season,” Shalulile tells KickOff.com.
“That was the worst time to be getting injured as I was obviously looking forward to getting a run in the PSL. However, all has gone well and I am getting there now so much that out of 10 I feel I am at seven now.
"I am doing my rehabilitation and I can now run again. I think by the time the league resumes I should be ready to get going yet again,” he says.
Shalulile joined The Lions of the North at the beginning of last season after impressing at the COSAFA Castle Cup.
