Cape Town - Jeremy Brockie thinks that SuperSport United are certainly heading in the right direction as they try to secure a spot among the top eight clubs in the Premiership.

Since Gordon Igesund took over at the helm last year, the one key component which has been lacking in this Matsatsantsa unit has been consistency.

Brockie, who has scored three goals in six Premiership starts this season, has played a significant role in this team's revival this term, but he acknowledges that it has not always been smooth sailing.

"It is down to consistency and we are slowly getting there,” said Brockie.

The most recent success for SuperSport was the 1-0 Nedbank Cup victory against Orlando Pirates at the weekend, and Brockie admits the performance against the Buccaneers was more than satisfactory.

"We had a committed and united performance,” said Brockie of the fixture against Pirates. 

"The keeper made some good saves. We knew we needed to be good in the air. I didn't know why we couldn't sneak one in the first half, I thought we dominated. 

"We scored a good goal and had many opportunities to score another. It didn't come and at 1-0 I thought the last 10 minutes would be difficult. We did dig deep," added Brockie.

The next assignment for United will be a Premiership fixture against Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala Stadium during the first week of April.
