SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo is confident that his prolific striker Bradley Grobler will be able to score the required goals to lead them to victory when they host Bloemfontein Celtic in the first leg of the semifinal at Lucas Moripe Stadium this afternoon (15:00).
Grobler recently walked away with the MTN8 Last Man Standing award after firing SuperSport to the Wafa Wafa title last season, netting two goals in four matches, including one in the final against now-defunct Highlands Park at Orlando Stadium in September last year.
The 32-year-old continued where he left off last term as he has scored three goals in the first two matches in the new campaign against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) and Black Leopards respectively.
“Bradley is very important to us, but not just in the MTN8, but throughout our campaign,” said Tembo.
Grobler was instrumental for the Tshwane side last campaign as he scored 16 goals in 34 matches, in all competitions.
“If you look at last season, he scored 13 league goals so that shows how important he is. Having said that, we always try to focus on the structure of the team, and he fits in very well into that.
“He allows us to play, especially in our attacking structure. His overall contribution to our attacking structure is very important to us,” concluded Tembo.
