Cape Town - SuperSport United striker, Jeremy Brockie, believes Premiership strikers will have a hard time getting passed the club's new defender Michael Boxall next season.

Brockie will be very familiar with Boxall's game having played with the centre-back at Wellington Pheonix and New Zealand national football team.

The striker, who himself has had a big impact on the league since joining Matsatsantsa in January, believes his compatriot will give strikers in South Africa a hard time.

"'Boxy' will bring a lot of strength to our back line," Brockie told KickOff.

"He's a centre back that's strong, quick and can play.

"He's a defender I always hated playing against so I'm very happy to have him on my team."

Brockie revealed SuperSport coach, Gordon Igesund, has had his eye on Boxall for some time and admitted he had a hand in convincing the defender to join the club.

Matsatsantsa won silverware in the form of the Telkom Knockout this season, but are looking to mount a challenge for the league title next term having only finished sixth this campaign.
