Thembisa - Veteran Highlands Park striker Collins Mbesuma is grateful to reach a Premier Soccer League century of goals following his strike in a 1-1 stalemate against Cape Town City.

Mbesuma was on target to hand the Lions of the North an equaliser which cancelled out Lebohang Manyama’s opener in an entertaining Absa Premiership clash played at the Makhulong stadium.

According to the Zambian international, it is not easy to score a hundred goals in top flight football. He gave credit to all his previous and current team-mates, who contributed to his stellar success since making his debut for Kaizer Chiefs against Black Leopards in the second round of the 2003/04 season.

Mbesuma found the back of the net on his debut but was then stretched off due to an injury.

“Yes, it’s a blessing to reach a century of goals in the PSL,” Mbesuma insisted.

“And there are too many people involved on this journey from all teams I have played for: Chiefs, Sundowns, Arrows, Swallows, Pirates, Aces and now Highlands Park.

“So many people helped me on the way; most players assisted me with those goals.

“It’s a blessing to me like I said and it’s not easy for a striker to reach this milestone but thank God I did.”

The 32-year-old remains the last player to score 25 league goals in a season, a record achieved back in the 2004/05 season - at Chiefs under the tutelage of the late Ted Dumitru.
