Peterborough United’s South African full back, Kgosi Ntlhe, made his long-awaited return to football this weekend after a long injury lay-off.
The 21-year-old defender has been out of action for nearly five months after tearing ligaments in his toe against Sheffield United back in August, however has managed to get himself back in action ahead of his proposed six-month recovery.
Despite his young age, Ntlhe has nearly 90 first team appearances in English football in the Championship, League One and the various domestic cups, though has been restricted to just four games this season due to his injury.
However, the talented defender came on as a 74th-minute substitute against Southend United on Saturday to make his first appearance since sustaining the injury in August, playing his role in helping them keep a clean sheet.
Ntlhe will now be focused on winning back his regular place in the club’s starting XI as they continue to push for promotion this season.
