Pretoria - SuperSport United coach Gordon Igesund revealed that he was anxious to watch Jeremy Brockie playing with a booking in their 1-0, Absa Premiership, win over Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala stadium on Saturday.

The New Zealand international striker continued with his tremendous form as his first half strike won the match for the Pretoria based outfit.

Igesund has admitted that he was protecting his target man from getting a second caution which could have resulted into his marching orders, when he replaced him with Bradley Grobler.  

“I was just a little bit scared that he might get a second yellow card,” said Igesund.

“Because obviously the only target was him in the match.

“The opponents know that he is scoring goals for us in almost each game we play.

“He did that as well today (Saturday) and he has goals written all over him and he always has defenders at his back all the time.

“So I substituted him because I was worried that he might commit a foul and get sent off.”

Since joining United in the January transfer window, the 27-year-old forward has found the back of the net five times in all competitions.
