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
"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."
