Cape Town - Despite leading the race for the golden boot award, Mpumalanga Black Aces striker Collins Mbesuma is far from satisfied with his goal-scoring tally this season.

Having reached a record-breaking tally of 25 goals with Amakhosi back in 2005, the Zambia international returns to the top of the scoring charts with 14 goals so far, ahead of their final match of the season against Free State Stars on Saturday.

"If I win this one, I won't be happy. I mean look at the goals I scored so far; 14 - that is pathetic," Mbesuma said.

"When I started this season, my focus was to break my record. That was my goal, even if I win this, I'm not going to celebrate. Fourteen goals after how many games, at least you need to score 20 or more then we would be talking."

The 32-year-old striker has managed to score just three goals in the last three months, and admits chances were not coming as he would have liked.

"Sometimes you don't get those chances you need to score," he said. "But the most important thing is the team.

"My focus is on the game, I know winning the award will be nice. It will be a good achievement, but I just need to play. I can't go there and stand and say I'm looking for goals.

"The focus should be the game, it is very important for the team."
