Cape Town - SuperSport United striker Jeremy Brockie feels in-form Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Lebese could be a serious contender for the Golden Boot award this season.

Lebese is currently the league's top scorer with four goals in four matches, while Brockie, also tipped to challenge for the leading marksman's gong, has only managed one strike in four outings.

"I think there are a few other players who are also capable of winning it as much as I also want it," he told Football411.

"Malajila [Cuthbert of Sundowns] is a good finisher and really knows his way around the box.

"Erasmus [Kermit] also from Pirates [Orlando] is also a great player and scores amazing goals for Pirates.

"Although I feel that Lebese [George] of Chiefs [Kaizer] has stood out for me.

"He's had a perfect start to the season and he can go on to score a lot of goals for them [Chiefs] this season.

"So there's plenty of competition I believe."

The 27-year-old did not rule himself out of contention, though, saying he's going to continue to work hard in order to start hitting the net soon.

Brockie made a huge impression last season, scoring eight goals in 13 appearances and it remains to be seen how many he will score in his first full season with Matsatsantsa.

"I think the pressure to score is always there as a striker," he added.

"Obviously I arrived in the PSL and I started scoring goals and everybody started to notice.

"So for me I just have to keep working hard, remain level-headed and try not to get caught up in the hype.

"I will still remain behind and practice shooting and finishing because it is my responsibility as a striker to want to score goals."
