Cape Town - Orlando Pirates captain Oupa Manyisa is looking forward to getting back on the field and helping his team following a long injury lay-off.

The 27-year-old midfielder recently returned to full training after recovering from a fractured ankle that forced him to watch on from the sidelines for over six months.

Manyisa has revealed the support from his Bucs team-mates was what kept him going, adding that he can't wait to get back on the pitch and help Eric Tinkler's side in the three remaining games of the season.

"It's painful to see the team going through a bad patch and there is nothing you can do," Manyisa told Goal website.

"It was tough for me, but my team-mates kept me going.

"Their support is what kept me motivated throughout my injury and recovery.

"Now that am healed, I have to give back to the team and be ready to play again. I am glad am back now."
