Bali Mumba admits it will be "a bit weird" facing former Norwich City team-mates on Saturday.

Mumba was a hit during a loan at Plymouth last season, helping them to the League One title before making the move permanent in the summer.

“It’s a big game for me because it's my first time playing against them since coming away from them," he told Argyle TV. "It'll mean a lot to me; I’m looking forward to it. I'm always up for games like this, when you're playing a team that you're familiar with.

“It's going to be a bit weird being on the other side, seeing familiar faces on the other side, but it’s definitely a game that I’ve been looking forward to and I'm excited for. Hopefully, I can put in a good performance and give Argyle something to smile about.

“It's a weird feeling, but you've got to realise the sport that we're in, you're going to get a lot of these days quite often, where you're playing against people that you know and people that you're quite familiar with.

“I've been with them in pre-season, so I know how they work and how they like to play. I guess that will help us when it comes to understanding them, when we have our meetings and watch clips. I'm guessing they know quite a bit about us; their assistant manager (Andy Hughes) used to be the loan manager, and used to come here to the games.

“My main focus is on us. I’m an Argyle player now, so that's sort of put behind me. I’m more excited to just prove a point and do well for us rather than thinking about all the good times that I’ve had with them.”

Argyle have lost their last two games, at Preston a week ago and then at Bristol City in midweek.

“On Saturday there is one thing on our mind,” said Bali. “The whole team knows it - and that is a reaction.

“Tuesday wasn't good enough. It was a game which we all know, that's not our level. That's not our standards. There’s no excuse about it. We just have to own up to it, we're all in it together, and we just have to move on and show a good reaction on Saturday.

“Everyone’s ready for it. There's been a good reaction in training, and I'm guessing, come Saturday, there'll be another positive reaction.”
