'Vila' picked up an Achilles tendon injury during Bafana Bafana camp in October last year and was initially ruled out of action for the rest of the season, but has since made a quicker recovery than expected.

'Mshishi' is happy to see Vilakazi back in action and believes his return will make a huge contribution as The Brazilians continue to chase both domestic and continental honours.

"I am happy that Villa is back," said Zwane.

"Everybody knows whenever Villa is on the pitch what he can do. You know our combination and understanding can do with Villa and I'm happy that he's back. He is gonna bring a great contribution to the team."
