Cape Town - SuperSport United defender Clayton Daniels says he is nearing a return to first team action and vows to earn his way back into the starting XI.

Daniels suffered a broken arm in training after his superb form earned him a recall to the national team set-up under coach Shakes Mashaba but now faces a massive task on his hands to reclaim a starting berth at Matsatsana.

In his absence, highly-rated youngster Denwin Farmer stepped up to good effect and the former Ajax Cape Town man claims the depth of the Tshwane-based outfit and having one of the top managers in the country gives the squad confidence that they will compete for major silverware.

"Well, I've been back at training with the team, it's going really well and fitness is getting better," Daniels told KickOff.

"Another two weeks then I'll go for another scan to give me the go ahead for selection, well two weeks from now I'll have a scan then all is good to go.

"I'm not worried about that [being unable to help defensively] because whoever is going to play is going to play his heart out for the team and that will make me keep working harder in order to get back and do my best as well for the team," Daniels added.

When the Premiership returns SuperSport welcome Highlands Park to the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday, October 16.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
