Cape Town - Midfielder Sandile Zuke says he is happy to be back at Chippa United but has asked the club's fans to be patient as they look to come through a rough patch of form.

The former Kaizer Chiefs man returned to the Port Elizabeth-based outfit for his second spell, and hopes to help inprove their fortunes, as after nine Premiership games, they find themselves down in 11th place with just nine points.

"This is a club that I’ve played for before, so it’s like coming home, and I am very excited to be part of this family again," he told the club's website.

Their 1-0 loss to Orlando Pirates on Tuesday saw their winless streak extend to seven games in all competitions. 

"We just need to push and continue playing our away, something will come up, we just need to continue working hard.

"Through dedication, hard work and determination you always get something positive. I guess that is what we need to show on the field of play, and take our chances in front of the goals," he added.

"I would like to thank the fans for the support they have given the club during these difficult times. 

"My plea to them is, 'be patient with us', we are a work in progress, soon the results that you are expecting will come," he concluded.

Chippa will be looking to improve on their poor run of form when they take on Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Tuesday.

Kick off is at 19:30.
