Cape Town - Bidvest Wits new-boy Lehlohonolo Majoro will be aiming to stay level-headed and focused on his job when he faces former club Cape Town City on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old striker has evolved into somewhat of a Premiership journeyman over the years. He left AmaZulu FC to join Kaizer Chiefs in 2011, and has since played for Orlando Pirates, Cape Town City, and now the Cleverboys.

Majoro is preparing to face former employers City in the Nedbank Cup last 32 at Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday, only a month after leaving them, but he insists he won't allow emotions to influence his play.

"I am always excited to play football. Yes, I am playing against my former team but I don't want to change anything or psyche myself for the match," he said, according to Sowetan Live.

"Once you do that you lose the plot and tend to play with emotion rather than a cool head."

On his nomadic tendencies, Majoro added: "I don't really focus much on changing teams. It's not something I say: 'this season I want to go here or there'.

"I always say that in life you are never guaranteed of tomorrow. Anything can change in a split second. I am just happy that I still have a job and playing for a team of a high calibre like Wits."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
