Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town veteran defender Dominic Isaacs is satisfied with the progress he has made thus far and expects to feature more prominently when the season resumes later this year.

Isaacs was sidelined by a hamstring injury during the first half of the season and did not play a single match during that period.

Doubts subsequently emerged about his availability in 2015 and coach Roger de Sa even admitted that he was thinking about recruiting another defender who could help fill the void that Isaacs left in the squad.

However, the signs are a lot more promising this month. The Ajax defender has been in training and appears to be making tremendous strides.

"I am feeling good. It’s nice to be able to train with the team again," Isaacs said.

"I’ve been unlucky in the last year or so.

“There has been one set back after the other, but I feel like I am strong enough to come back from it," added the experienced defender.

That said the jury is still out on whether he will be able to last 90 minutes when the season resumes next month and both Isaacs and the technical team are still treading very carefully in that regard. The last thing the club needs is for Isaacs to re-injure himself.

"I don’t know what I would feel like if I were to play, but training is going well. The coach can see how far I’ve come, so he won’t push me too hard.

“I think I would be able to play for about 45 minutes at the moment, but we’ll see what decision the coach makes with these friendlies," said Isaacs.
