Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Gordon Igesund is confident he has two strikers who know their way to goal in Jeremy Brockie and Kingston Nkhatha.

Brockie and Nkhatha both joined the Tshwane side in the January transfer window, and both went on to score on debut for the club, with Brockie having also netted a second goal in his second game.

Former Bafana Bafana mentor Igesund, who has seen his side climbing to sixth position on the standings, is thrilled at the positive start the two players have made to their careers at SuperSport.

"I am very happy, it is a good start for him [Brockie]. Sometimes when foreigners come in they take a little bit of time to settle. He has hit the road running, I hope he keeps it up, he will keep working," Igesund was quoted as saying by the African Football website.

"I am sure he will be able to do that [score goals]. He is honest player, he works hard at training.

“The players around him have accepted him very nicely and they have slowly learnt what his strengths are and we are trying to play to those.

"Don't forget Kingston Nkhatha as well. He scored the goal on his debut and he is going to start getting his confidence back, then there is [Dove] Wome, Bradley Grobler and Thuso Phala."

Apart from Nkhatha and Brockie, Igesund believes he has several players capable of bagging 20 goals per season.

"We have a lot of goals in this team and I am just happy the goals are coming from the right department. Our attacking, offensive players are scoring goals," he added.

"He [Brockie] started off well so lets hope it keeps going. I think not only Jeremy, but Kingston as well.

"I don't just want to talk about Jeremy, he has been impressive, he has scored two goals in two games but I would like to see all my strikers at around about 15-20 goals in a season.

“Kingston has got it in him, Bradley has got it in him, Wome, Brockie as well."
