Moroka Swallows hitman Collins Mbesuma is confident that he can rediscover the goal scoring form that saw him net 33 goals in 27 games for Kaizer Chiefs a few seasons ago.
The 25-year-old netted a brace for the Birds against Golden Arrows at the weekend in their 3-1 win and believes that he is almost back to his best.
He told Football365.co.za: “I’m trying to get back to the form I had when I scored those goals for Chiefs because I have struggled with injuries over the last two years and I need to work extra hard to get back to my best.
“I’m a striker and I need to score goals, so I hope that I can carry on from where I left off against Golden Arrows in the next game.
“I haven’t set myself a goal target for the season, I just want to try and score in every game I play in.
“The coach is encouraging us to work hard here and the more you work hard the more you are going to be in the team.
The former Portsmouth striker has set his sights on making an impact for Zambia at the African Nations Cup in Angola in January where The Copper Bullets have drawn heavy weights Cameroon, Tunisia and Gabon.
He continued: “It is a tough group we have drawn with some big games against Cameroon and Tunisia, they are some of the top teams in Africa, so we need to challenge them and work hard to beat them and make the most of our opportunity to play in the Africa Cup of Nations.
“I’m confident that I will be part of the squad that goes to Angola because I have been working hard and I have to play as many games for my club and do as well for my club as I can to be there.”
