Brockie: SSU enjoying Baxter’s reign

Nedbank Cup

Baxter joined United in January following the departure of Gordon Igesund, with the former Kaizer Chiefs helping Matsatsantsa qualify for semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup.

Brockie – the club’s top-scorer with 16 goals in all competitions - says his club have enjoyed Baxter’s reign thus far, as they set their sights on their only realistic chance of silverware for the season.

"We have had a disappointing season from the league point of view,” the New Zealand striker said. "But since coach Stuart Baxter came in, we have been enjoying ourselves.

"We are now looking forward to the Nedbank Cup as the only trophy up for grabs now. It’s nice that we have qualified for the next round.”

SuperSport’s 2-1 win over Mpumalanga Black Aces on Friday has set them up with a semi-final date against giant-killers Baroka FC next month.
