Allie joined the Team of Choice on a free transfer after being released by the side coached by Gavin Hunt.

The 33-year-old veteran is yet to reach full match fitness, though he feels he is ready for action.

He said: "Obviously I joined a little late when pre-season was on already. Coach [Fadlu Davids] said to me that he had a programme for me to get to full fitness.

"I have played a few friendly matches now so hopefully I am fully fit. Obviously you will only see when you play a competitive match.

"I have played at different clubs, different positions and I can add to the squad, and try and bring that winning mentality into the squad.

"For me I just have to focus on getting into the team, work as hard as possible and hope the coach selects me.

"For me, I'm used to it [facing former teams]. I moved from Ajax to Wits so it doesn't matter for me. It will be a tough game against the log leaders so we will have to be at our best to get the victory at our home stadium."
