Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns winger Aubrey Ngoma says he's uncertain whether he'll celebrate scoring against former team Cape Town City.

Sundowns face the Citizens in a top-of-the-table Absa Premiership clash at the Athlone Stadium on Friday night.

Ngoma was one of City's best players last season and was part of a Citizens team which defeated Sundowns three times.

"I think what helped us consistently beat Sundowns was the team spirit that we had," Ngoma told IOL website.

"We were driven to beat the so-called big teams and make a name for ourselves, especially since we were a new and small club. 

"It's not that we planned differently for Sundowns but the drive and dedication was always high against them. We wanted to beat the former African champions which is a big deal and is why we gave 150 percent effort against them," he added.

The 28-year-old concedes that Friday night's game could be an emotional one for him against a team where he reignited his career.

"I have mixed-feelings about this game," he said. "I don't even know what I will do should I score. My reaction will be whatever comes naturally, in terms of whether I celebrate or not. It will be driven by what I feel at that moment. 

"I have fond memories of my time at Cape Town City. They took my football to the next level and I grew as a person and as a player in my time there. 

"My proudest moment was when we won the Telkom Knockout in our first season. But I have to move on, now I am at Sundowns and if I am given the chance I will look to help the team break the spell Cape Town City have over us."
