Cape Town - SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams says he is delighted to be back in action and believes he is back to full strength following his superb display against Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Bafana Bafana international was in brilliant form against the Brazilians in Saturday's 1-1 draw in the Premiership, as he produced a number of fine saves to keep his team alive in the contest. 

However, the game was his first in nearly three months after he was sidelined with a shoulder injury. Nonetheless, the 26-year-old believes he came through the test unscathed and is now back to his best for Eric Tinkler's men.

"It's been tough, especially when I couldn't help the team when they were going through a bad patch.

"For the first four weeks I couldn't do anything as I was just in a sling. But my partner, my son, the players and coaches were there encouraging me. 

"The first thing the goalkeeper coach Andre [Arendse] said to me after the match was, 'You are ready and I don't have to ask you anymore'. 

"It was playing on my mind that what if one of them hits a rocket - maybe Hlompho [Kekana] - and it goes to my right side? Would I be able to react quickly enough? I'm happy I did well." 

Matsatsantsa are next in action on Wednesday when they face fellow strugglers Ajax Cape Town at Athlone Stadium.

The game gets underway from 19:30.
