Cape Town - Cape Town City winger Aubrey Ngoma is still making his way back from injury but hopes to get a few run outs before the end of the year.

Ngoma was one of City's best players last season, but has not featured at all in the current campaign due to a knee injury.

But the former AmaTuks and Orlando Pirates attacker is hopeful of getting in some game-time within the next month or two.

"I've started with light training sessions with the team and (so far, so good)," Ngoma said.

"I'm also hoping to be back in action in a few weeks or so, hopefully feature in a few games or so before the Christmas break. But yes, we'll have to wait and see."

Speaking on City's defeat to SuperSport in the MTN8 final last weekend, Ngoma said he hopes his side can take some lessons into the next cup competition, the Telkom Knockout.

The Cape side were on Monday drawn against league leaders Baroka FC in the tournament they won last season.

"Baroka are having the time of their life at the moment," Ngoma said.

"They haven't lost a single match in their league campaign so far this season, so I believe that it's going to be a very interesting fixture for both of us.

"We as Cape Town City are always looking forward to playing them in Polokwane because we have a whole lot of good memories playing there.

"I know that the gents (City team-mates) as well are also looking forward to continuing with the very same form we have shown by producing winning results there.

"Sure, we've lost in the MTN8 final," the 27-year-old continued, "but I believe that it was a learning curve for all of us here at the club.

"We should have done a few things differently in that game, I believe. But having said that, going into this year's Telkom Knockout competition, we are going to make sure we do not repeat the same mistakes."
