SuperSport United striker Jeremy Brockie is hopeful that he will be able to avoid ‘second season syndrome’ and prove he is not a one-hit-wonder when the PSL season resumes next month.

The New Zealand international proved a great acquisition for Matsantsantsa, scoring 10 goals in all competitions after signing in January this year.

"If I don't score goals in the new season, it will look like I had a lucky half-season," Brockie is quoted on KickOff.

"I'll be working hard to make sure I get to the 10-goal mark and hopefully better it, but the most important thing is for the team to win trophies."

Brockie is aware that he will be more closely marked this season after taking everyone by surprise in 2014/15.

"I guess there's always pressure on strikers because you're judged on how many goals you score and I know I have to work harder.

"Goals aren't just going to fall on my feet. I have to work hard at training to earn my spot in the team."

Brockie will have a chance to show his skills when United compete in the Cape Town Cup later this month.
