Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town striker Prince Nxumalo feels that stop-start nature of the Premiership campaign has negatively impacted him and his side.
The 25-year-old was in fine fettle at the start of the season, picking up the Premiership Player of the Month for August after scoring three goals in three appearances.
However, Nxumalo subsequently suffered two separate epileptic attacks, in August and September, leaving him kicking his heels in frustration.
While he has struggled personally to bounce back from his health issues, the Urban Warriors have also struggled to maintain their momentum due to the regular breaks in South Africa's top flight.
"This stop-and-go break has been hard for us - we were doing well," Nxumalo told KickOff.
"It's also been hard for me to get back into it, because when you're scoring goals, you get that confidence - you wish you could play every week!
"So the break is not good, but there's nothing you can do."
Looking at his own performances and where he could potentially improve, he added: "I can improve on my decision making, and not losing the ball in the final third.
"Holding the ball more, and creating the space for the midfielders behind me. So if I improve on those aspects, I know I can become the top striker in the PSL.
"The team is working hard and helping me get back to my best - so I know I'll be back to my best."
