After netting against Cape Town City last weekend, the Serbian bagged a brace as the Soweto giants defeated Sundowns 2-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Nurkovic, who scooped the Man of the Match award, was delighted to be back among the goals after recovering from a head injury.

"My job as a striker is to score as much as possible, to help the team, today was my day and I'm grateful, thank God," Nurkovic told SuperSport after the game.

"It was a very difficult three weeks for me because I had this head injury, I feel good [now], I could not play with my head, finally I'm back on the pitch and I'm happy that I'm scoring goals and helping the team to achieve their goals," he continued.

"Everyone is wonderful, it shows that hard work pays off. I'm not on the pitch just to score goals, if I'm in a position to assist, my teammate is in a better position I'd rather assist him to score.

"Once again I'm grateful and I want to take this opportunity to thank the Amakhosi fans, without them it was going to be very difficult," he added.
