Johannesburg - New Zealander Jeremy Brockie is poised to be the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup leading scorer as he holds a four-goal advantage with only the second leg of the final to come.

He plays for SuperSport United of South Africa, who host the return match Saturday hoping to overcome a 2-1 deficit against title-holders TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Brockie, who was born in the rugby stronghold of Christchurch, has scored 10 goals, including a hat-trick, in the African equivalent of the UEFA Europa League.

Ben Malango of Mazembe is among his closest challengers, but faces the unrealistic target of scoring at least five goals to overtake Brockie.

New Zealand recalled Brockie for a World Cup play-off they lost to Peru this month and he played in his homeland, Australia and Canada before joining SuperSport two years ago.

The 30-year-old is among 30 nominees for the CAF Africa-based Footballer of the Year - the first non-African to be considered for the award.
