The 24-year-old was handed first-choice duties between the sticks for the Buccaneers last year following the tragic death of Senzo Meyiwa, although he struggled to get going after producing some shaky performances.

However, Mhlongo finally began finding his feet only to see the Premiership go on a two-month break, although he is targeting a strong return when Pirates face basement club AmaZulu on Wednesday.

“I had fun, but obviously it was a time for me to relax, unwind and spend quality time with my friends and family," he told KickOff.

“I also reflected a bit on the first few matches I played and I must say, it's tough going into a break just when your confidence is starting to grow.

“I feel like I could have just continued to play because I started to enjoy my game more.

“I've also highlighted all the things I need to work on in 2015, where I need to improve and so forth.”
