Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie says he is working hard to overcome a difficult spell since joining the Brazilians from SuperSport United.

The New Zealand international has managed just one goal since his arrival at Chloorkop, which came against Kaizer Chiefs in the Shell Helix Cup.

The 31-year old striker had successful three-years at Matsatsantsa netting 54 goals and is confident his luck will soon change for the better at Pitso Mosimane's side.

 "First and foremost, I'm going to work my way back into the starting 11, which is not easy when you look at the calibre of the players in the team," Brockie said, as quoted by KickOff website.

"And then when I get the chance (I'll use it to my advantage). You are not going to get many chances when you are at a top football club like this, so hopefully everyone around me stays patient.

"But I'm not going to stay like this for the rest of my time here at Sundowns, and I'm sure once one goal goes in then hopefully my luck changes.

"Absolutely, I think most importantly you have got to surround yourself with the right type of people and stay off social media for a while because there you know how harsh they (the fans) can be.

"When things are not going well I still have a lot of support from people close to me, and that to me is the most important thing. Even off the football pitch I take the struggles and work hard."
