Mamelodi Sundowns are set to commence their 2018 Nedbank Cup journey on Friday night with an opening round clash against Cape Town All Stars, and new signing Jeremy Brockie is certainly licking his lips at the prospect.
The New Zealand international recently signed for Masandawana following months of hackling between his former side SuperSport United and the Tshwane giants. But while much has been expected of Brockie, he is yet to find the mark, but that could be due to the fact that he has been resigned to just a few cameo appearances off the bench prior to the clash against Cape Town City.
Nonetheless, the 30-year-old now looks eager to break his duck and contribute to what could potentially be his third Nedbank Cup crown.
“Yeah it will be pretty nice‚" Brockie said on The Sowetan.
"It was the first piece of silverware that I won in South Africa and I have managed to go back-to-back with it. I feel I'm in the right team to go and win it for the third time.
"It's definitely on my mind and hopefully I can make that achievement," he added.
Meanwhile, Brockie reveals that he has needed to adapt to the rigours of a new club, but feels that he is inching closer to finding his feet yet again.
"When you get to a new club‚ you always want to find your feet and put the ball in the back of the net. I didn't have too many chances against City‚ disappointed with the header that I had against Chiefs,” he said.
"I'm slowly getting closer and closer and I'm sure once that first one comes‚ there will be no pressure on me whether from the technical team or players. They know that it will happen when it happens,” the marksman explained.
"Once that first one is off my back‚ it will start flowing from there" Brockie expressed.
Looking forward to Friday’s clash against the National First Division outfit, Brockie remains positive about the Brazilians chances of progression, but remains wary.
"I think if we play to our game and strengths‚ then we should find ourselves in the next round‚" he said.
"We are not going there overconfident because it is a cup game and anything can happen‚” he concluded.
