Cape Town - Bradley Grobler has welcomed the competition for places among the striking ranks at SuperSport United despite finding himself starting from the bench towards the end of last season.

Grobler has dropped down the pecking order at SuperSport after the mid-season signings of Kingston Nkhatha and Jeremy Brockie.

And now with the recent addition of NFD top scorer, Phumelele Bhengu, the battle for a place in the starting XI has only become more difficult.

The son of South African soccer star, Les Grobler, is not fazed by the competition for places - in fact he is excited to be a part of what he thinks will be the best strike force in the country.

“The signing of Bhengu is a good one,” the striker said.

“I think if you look at us going forward now I think the team is one of the best in the league."

Grobler also suggested his role in the team might change as Gordon Igesund now sees him playing in a deeper role, behind the number 9.

"The signing of another striker is just an encouragement.

“The coach also enjoyed using me as an attacking midfielder behind the striker which was also nice I enjoyed that."

This would mean that he might well be challenging Togolese midfielder, Dove Wome, for a starting berth come the start of the 2015/16 season.
