United’s media officer Brian Moshoeshoe says the club is in a race against time to bolster their striking department.

Moshoshoe added that it was difficult to confirm at this point the number of strikers that the team will sign to share Brockie’s responsibility.

“Football is a funny game, you will never know. We could sign one or two strikers in this transfer window you will never know, but I can confirm that there will be a replacement as you know that Jeremy left us, so we definitely have to strengthen that department.

“We can’t announce yet because we are working on it, it’s still a process. We have a Cameroonian training with us and a German striker training with us as well, but we still have 48 hours to decide on signing them.”
