Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane is delighted to be back in Soweto, as the team look to consolidate their position at the top of the Premiership standings.

Chiefs are 15 points clear at the top of the league standings and Letsholonyane, along with the Amakhosi contingent that took part in the Africa Cup of Nations, thinks the club is in a good position to lift the title at the end of the season.

"It is good to be back. I didn’t have much game time but the tournament was an eye opener," said Letsholonyane, who is also confident about the club’s prospects in continental competition this term.

"We played against big footballing nations and experienced players. I hope to use the experience to benefit my team going forward.”

While Letsholonyane has proven to be a useful playmaker throughout this campaign, he has also been rather prolific in front of goal, having breached opposition defences five times in 17 matches.

"We are geared for the restart of the PSL season.

“The situation of a squeezed calendar is no surprise. The Technical Team will manage the situation when the games come thick and fast.

"The break can make or break you, but with us we are better off because we went into the break on a high note."
