Brockie fighting Sundowns frustration

Mamelodi Sundowns recruit Jeremy Brockie is feeling frustrated but has faith he will soon open his account for the Brazilians.
The New Zealand international has failed to score in five outings for Sundowns since his high-profile move from SuperSport United in January.
Brockie, who played in the 1-1 draw with Free State Stars at Loftus Versfeld last night, is eager to end a scoring drought that stretches back to October 28 when he last netted for SuperSport against Bloemfontein Celtic in the Telkom Knockout.
"It's disappointing and frustrating but I have got support from all the guys and coaching staff. I am sure [a goal] is not far away," said Brockie, who has struck eight times in all competitions this season.
"I have had a drought before. Every striker goes through a difficult period in terms of finding the net. I just have to stay calm and composed. I can't let it get to me because if you do there is no chance [the goals] will come."
Brockie has no complaints with the quality of supply he is getting from his teammates.
"I will keep getting in the right areas and try to hit the target. The supply I am getting is good. It won't be too long," he added.
The 30-year-old plundered 54 goals in a three-year spell for SuperSport - three goals shy of the club record held by the late Abram Raselemane.
He could break his duck against Matsatsantsa in the Tshwane derby at Loftus on Saturday (15h30).
