Watch: Samir Nurkovic’s brilliant first Soweto Derby goal

Ahead of the Soweto Derby Nurkovic had denied being frustrated by his lack of goals this season. His sublime bicycle kick stunner was just his second goal of the season.

“Frustrated? Not at all, because it’s a big difference. Last season, when I came to the club, we had one and a half months of pre-season and preparing,” Nurkovic told the media.

“But the difference this season is that I missed a lot of games from the beginning, I just went from recovery treatments and sessions straight to the games.

“I’m happy that I am finally back and that I can help the team. Obviously, it’s not frustrating for me, I have to just work hard and hopefully the next game will be the game [to score].”
