Cape Town - Cape Town City winger Aubrey Ngoma could be in line to make his comeback against Baroka FC in a Telkom Knockout last 16 match this weekend.

A knee injury has meant that Ngoma, who was one of City's best players last season, has not played a single tie in the current campaign.

But he is back in full training and with the Citizens currently struggling for form of late, head coach Benni McCarthy may be tempted to give the 27-year-old a run out.

The former Orlando Pirates and AmaTuks forward says however that he won't rush things and may only be ready for a few minutes off the bench.

"It felt good to be back training with the guys after I had been out for three-and-a-half months," Ngoma told The Sowetan.

"I don’t want to put pressure on myself," he continued. "It's not like I was out for three days, you know. I was out for a very long time and the first thing I want to do is get my match fitness and once I'm fit, I can start kicking on.

"I just want to get back on the field even if it's five minutes. I have to work hard and get back to full fitness."

City face Baroka at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday with McCarthy's men looking to bounce back to winning ways after a recent slump in form.

Kick off is at 15:30.
