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.
