Brockie targets Golden Boot

Cape Town - SuperSport United striker Jeremy Brockie says he is targeting nothing less than lifting the Lesley Manyathela award come the end of the Premiership season.

The New Zealand international burst onto the South African scene last term with seven goals in 13 matches after only joining Matsatsantsa in January.

And, with the forward set for his first full season with the Tshwane giants, he sees no reason why he can't challenge last season's Golden Boot-winner Moeketsi Sekola for this year's gong.

"Every striker aims for the Golden Boot, if it isn't a goal for any striker than I am not sure where they are getting their motivation from," Brockie told Football411.

"It's something that I would like to achieve in my time in South Africa. I have a good opportunity to do that with some of the attacking players that provide opportunities for me here at SuperSport."

Brockie has already opened his Premiership scoring account this term, finding the back of the net against Mpumalanga Black Aces in the 1-1 draw in August.

He will now be looking to build on that when United take on defending champions Kaizer Chiefs at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Saturday night, a match Brockie knows can have a big impact on the title race.

"Chiefs are a very big club, probably the biggest in the country," Brockie continued. "There is no motivation needed when you come up against big clubs like Chiefs.

"We have had a reasonable start to the season. If we can go out there on Saturday and get a good result, come away with three points, that will set us nicely for the season. We have to beat the big teams to do well."
