Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates striker Collins Mbesuma claims he is now in better shape than ever before and expects to hit the back of the net on a more regular basis.

Mbesuma, who scored a sensational 35 goals for Kaizer Chiefs during the 2004/05 season, has regularly been on the score sheet for the Buccaneers since joining in the off-season, and insists there is more to come.

"As a striker, I always aim to be the top scorer," Mbesuma told Football411. "And I think I'm fully fit and I have a better understanding with my team-mates so I think this puts me in a position where I can get the goals more regularly. I feel I can score more."

The Zambia international, who signed a three-year deal from Golden Arrows in August, has scored four goals for the Soweto giants this season and is delighted with his start.

"It was easy to settle in because I'm surrounded by good professionals. I'm really enjoying myself at Pirates and I feel really good. I want to help this team win trophies again," Mbesuma added.

The burly forward is expected to be in action on Sunday when Pirates take on Bloemfontein Celtic in the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals.
