Cape Town - Golden Arrows winger Deon Hotto said he was thrilled to make his return to action after missing the opening weeks of the PSL season due to work permit issues.

The Namibia star released some of the frustration of sitting in the stands by producing an impressive display against Mamelodi Sundowns over the weekend, when he was named man-of-the-match in a shock 2-1 win over the Brazilians.

"I was out for three games as my work permit was not finalised and yeah, first game and man of the match and three points... It was a great start for me and the team," he said.

Hotto injected a lot of pace on the left-hand side for Arrows against Sundowns, cutting inside several times in search of his first season goal.

"I have been working hard on the sidelines and I'm expecting to score goals this season for the team," he added.

Meanwhile, his compatriot Chris Katjiukua, who has been out for four league games now due to knee and head injuries, is set to return next Wednesday against Mpumalanga Black Aces in Chatsworth.
