Mamelodi Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie is looking forward to facing his side SuperSport United on Saturday.

The two Pretoria giants will lock horns in an Absa Premiership match at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Brockie will face SuperSport for the first time since leaving them for Sundowns during the recent January Transfer Window.

“It would be very nice (to score against SuperSport). I am looking forward to going back and playing against the boys on the weekend," Brockie said.

“Hopefully a big crowd turns up in Atteridgeville. It would be very nice to hit the back of the net for the first time for Sundowns against the old club.

The New Zealand international, who had a successful spell with SuperSport, is yet to score his first goal for Sundowns.

"I have kept in touch with a couple of the boys, Reyaad (Pieterse), (Dean) Furman and Thuso (Phala). They are looking forward to the game, and they are giving me a lot of support as well during this drought," he added.

"It’s a matter of time before the first one hits the back of the net. I have to give a special mention to the Sundowns’ fans, even though I had a couple of chances that I didn’t put in the back of the net (against Free State Stars) they still cheered and supported me. I thank them for that.”

The Tshwane Derby will kick-off at 18h00 CAT.
