However, the return of Dan Malesela to the Eastern Cape outfit seemed to have worked well for the 32-year-old as he made his first start of the season on Wednesday against SuperSport United, scoring a goal as Chippa fought hard to earn a point away from home in the 2-2 draw. 

“Andile is a talented player but there are other aspects of his game that we need to work on. But when he is playing you have the comfort that the ball will be secured. There will always be progress towards goals,” Malesela said about the former captain.
