Cape Town - Aubrey Ngoma has spoken of his excitement
at getting a rare run-out for Mamelodi Sundowns during the match with AmaZulu
in the Prince Mangosuthu Legacy Cup.
The 29-year-old has struggled for game time
at the Tshwane outfit, but was able to feature in the 2-1 win over Usuthu in a
friendly match during the international break.
Ngoma joined the Brazilians in a big-money
move from Cape Town City in January but has struggled to hit the ground running
with Pitso Mosimane's side.
"It is just a matter of getting match
fitness. With match fitness comes confidence, self-belief," Ngoma said, as
quoted by KickOff website.
"As I keep getting minutes on the
field that'll improve my confidence and I can get back to my normal self.
"It was good to get some minutes in an
unofficial match. It was good to get a run out. I've missed playing football,
just training doesn't really help much to improve.
"But to get on the field with
opponents in a game like this that can only do you justice, to better your
football and also improve the match fitness."
Meanwhile, Sundowns will welcome Steve
Komphela’s Bloemfontein Celtic side to the Lucas Moripe Stadium for a Telkom
Knock last 16 clash.
Kick-off is at 18:00 on Saturday.
