The marriage between the prolific finisher from New Zealand and Sundowns’ attack was expected to be a union made in heaven.
Instead the striker increasingly felt the pressure for that first goal grow month by month – which finally he emphatically broke with his fine strike on the volley slammed in for Downs in their 3-1 thrashing of Free State Stars at Loftus Versfeld on Wednesday night.
Afterwards‚ in his TV interview with SuperSport‚ it was put to Brockie that he might have had two more against Stars.
Cheekily he responded with a grin: “Ja‚ I know‚ I’ll save those two for Saturday.”
Sundowns meet Pirates at Loftus on Saturday (kickoff 3.30pm) in what is generally one of the most keenly awaited clashes on the PSL calendar.
