Black Leopards striker Mwape Musonda admits the squad have not met expectations so far this season and need to step up their game to avoid relegation.

Musonda was the Absa Premiership's Golden Boot winner last season after bagging 16 goals to help Lidoda Duvha stave off relegation.

The current season, which is on hiatus due to the coronavirus outbreak, has not gone as well for the Zambia international as he has managed only five goals.

"I feel like we have underachieved as a team to be honest because we have such great talent in the team to be fighting relegation every season," Musonda told FARPost.

"To me, the team comes first, if I can score the goals that help my team win trophies and achieve things, then I'm happy.

"So, on that note, it really doesn't excite me to score all those goals while the team hasn't achieved anything to talk about but we will fight until the end."

Musonda also became Leopards' top all-time goal scorer at the end of last season with 58 to his name.

"Well, what can I say, man, it always feels great when you achieve milestones like this in your career, so yeah as an individual I feel happy and proud of what I have achieved because I know now someone has to do better than I have to beat that record," he added.

"But honestly I feel like I have under-achieved, definitely not the number I am happy about, I feel like I could have done better."\
