Brockie Targets 20 Goals And To End 'Awful’ Sundowns Record

Jeremy Brockie will be targeting his 50th goal for SuperSport United this weekend, but the New Zealander is well aware of how tough Mamelodi Sundowns will be.
 
 
The 29-year-old has been an excellent addition to the Absa Premiership since his arrival in 2015, scoring 49 goals in all competitions and finding the back of the net in every tournament that he has taken part in.
 
His form has understandably attracted interest from numerous clubs elsewhere, with Sundowns’ Pitso Mosimane known to be a big admirer of his and Masandawana have made unsuccessful attempts to sign him in the past.
 
Now, as he comes up against his admirers in the first Tshwane Derby of 2017/18, Brockie is eager to ‘change the script’ with Matsatsantsa having failed to beat their rivals in normal time since way back in 2013.
 
Speaking to the Siya crew, the Kiwi said, “We are well aware that our record has been awful against Sundowns of late, and everyone's pretty keen to change that script! It won't be easy because there's a lot of quality throughout the Sundowns squad.
 
 
“Hopefully, with it being so early in the season and the occasion of (the) opening game, then the boys will be up for it and be on the front foot from the start. We will need another strong defensive performance like last week!”
 
On the topic of Sundowns’ interest in him, he replied, “I've had to deal with the reports for quite a while now and while it seems the interest is a lot stronger this time around I believe I can and will handle it like I normally do and that's putting in a professional display and hopefully put in a match-winning performance.”
 
Meanwhile, Brockie - who scored his first goal of the season in the MTN8 - also finds himself just nine goals away from beating Abram Raselemane’s club record of 57 goals, a record that he could break this season.
 
When asked if he wants to start stronger after being slow out of the blocks last year, Brockie explained, “Yeah, it’s something that I want to change this season, and also building on my league goal tally. I'm looking to get close to 20 goals and with the right service and supply I don't see why that's an unreasonable target!”
