SuperSport United forward Bradley Grobler has revealed his desire to reach triple figures and the elusive 100-goal mark to solidify his status as one of the deadliest strikers to grace the DStv Premiership.

Only five players have ever reached the 100-goal mark being Siyabonga Nomvete (123 goals), Daniel Mudau, Mabhuti Khenyeza, Manuel 'Tico-Tico' Bucuane, and Collins Mbesuma.

Grobler has the milestone in sight with his current goal tally on 94 goals playing for a South African top division club.

The 34-year-old has played for Platinum Stars, Ajax Cape Town, and SuperSport.

Only Khama Billiat (97 goals) of Kaizer Chiefs has scored more than Grobler from the list of active players.

"I will definitely push to get to that mark within the current season," Grobler tells KickOff of his desire to reach 100 goals.

"It is something that I haven’t thought about but now that you have made me aware of it, I will have further motivation to get those goals."

The Bafana Bafana international has started the season in impressive fashion with five goals already this season in the race for the golden boot.

"I must say I feel ready as I’m enjoying myself since we have such a nice thing going here at SuperSport.

"It is a good club to be a part of and has always been for as long as I have been here.

"We have a coach with a lot of experience and a lot of quality in the team so at the moment I feel as good as I have felt for a long time.

"I’m motivated and excited for the rest of the season.

"With Gavin [Hunt] there is more to the game than just me scoring goals even though when the goals happen, they are a nice bonus," Grobler added.

Grobler opened his top-flight account back in November 2007 against Free State Stars while with Platinum Stars and has also spent a spell in Turkey.
