Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger De Sa has praised the fighting spirit of striker Prince Nxumalo after his comeback from cardiac problems.

Nxumalo has returned to action again after months on the sidelines following two successive epileptic fits in September.

The 25-year-old was back on the scoresheet in the 3-1 loss to Chippa United at Buffalo City Stadium on Sunday.

"What Prince has been through, he's come back in such good form and in such a positive way," De Sa told KickOff.

"I think the last two performances from him have really been positive.

"I thought he was very good against's really been good to see him bounce back, showing good signs and competing with Nathan Paulse, and I've very impressed with the way he's carried himself."

De Sa also confirmed that striker Tashreeq Morris could make his first appearance in 10 months after a knee injury against Golden Arrows on Friday.  

"Tassie has been training. I gave him a longer run at training, and he'll be on the bench against Arrows...if the opportunity comes that we can play him for 10 or 15 minutes, we will," De Sa said.

"If not, we'll have to delay it and he'll probably play in the Diski team on Saturday morning against Aces."
