Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie says he is hopeful of delivering the goods on Friday against AS Togo-Port in the CAF Champions League at Lucas Moripe Stadium.

The Brazilians meet the visitors in Pretoria with revenge on their minds after they lost 1-0 to the Togolese in the previous match in the tournament.

As such, Sundowns need to win to keep alive their hopes alive in Africa's most prestigious club competition.

Brockie hit his first competitive goal for his side recently in the Shell Helix Ultra Cup victory over Kaizer Chiefs, and he believes it could stand him in good stead against Togo-Port.

Speaking to Kickoff, he said: "It's been a long time coming and now people can stop asking when the first goal is going to come and we can move on. Hopefully that's the start of a good season ahead.

"I hope I did enough on the weekend to cement my place in the line-up for Friday and then it's about keeping yourself in the line-up.

"If I get an opportunity on Friday, now that the first one has hit the back of the net, they will start coming.

"When you play on the continent, sometimes you have to move away from your normal style and adjust to what's put in front of you.

"For me as an attacking player it's just about positioning yourself in the box and making sure you take the opportunities when they come."
