Brockie bemoans 'frustrating' break

Cape Town - SuperSport United marksman Jeremy Brockie says the lengthy Premiership break has made his appetite for scoring goals even stronger.

With six goals to his name, the New Zealand international has been leading the charge for his team this season.

United have been on a resurgence recently after a disastrous start to the season which saw them battle in the relegation terrain.

In their next game against University of Pretoria on December 20, Brockie will be highly motivated to continue his goal-scoring exploits.

"I've never experienced something like this. It's been quite frustrating with the stop-start break, but you can't do anything about it," Brockie told KickOff.

"I understand the reasoning behind it; when you're a player involved with it, it's good, but when you're not involved, then it's the opposite, obviously.

"We were given seven days off after the Ajax game which was good, I could spend some time with the family.

"Having a break helps a little bit, as you can go and clear your head and take your mind off football a little bit, but it is very tough to keep motivated - you have to find ways to motivate yourself.

"As a striker, it's a little bit easier for me as I just lash a few balls at goal at the end of training.

"But we've been playing some small-sided games and we've got a few friendlies lined up next week."
