SuperSport United striker Bradley Grobler has revealed his next target after reaching 100 career league goals in the PSL.
Grobler reached the milestone after scoring a stunning volley from a penalty that rebounded back to him following a save by goalkeeper Renaldo Leaner, in a 2-0 win over Maritzburg United.

The 35-year old forward says he was unaware of his record in front of goal until he was told he was about to enter the 100-goal club when he reached 95 goals.
"You know it's something that never crossed my mind until probably when I got about 95 goals and people started talking about it and counting," Grobler said on SAFM Sport.
"And up to that point I had absolutely no idea. But yeah, from about 95 goals everyone started counting down, including my dad (Swallows legend Les Grobler), you know he's the last person that would have ever kind of put pressure on me.
"But he was also quite excited about it as well, so going into every game I would be reminded there is so many goals to go. So it was something that came as a big of surprise to me but really nice to have got there," he said.

The veteran forward has joined legendary strikers such as Collins Mbesuma (103), Manuel 'Tico-Tico' Bucuane (107), Mabhuti Khenyeza (110), Daniel Mudau (110) and Siyabonga Nomvethe (123) in the PSL 100-goal club.
The Johannesburg native went on to say that it's a dream come true to be among those prolific strikers in the century club and has set his sights on breaking the record of 123 goals scored by Nomvethe.
"Before I started professionally, some of them just after I started professional football were big names and guys that I looked up to, I wanted to be like them and I wanted to emulate what they have done," he continued.

"And to sit there and have my name alongside those guys is a dream come true if I could say, very honoured.
"Now the next one is to try to catch number one (Nomvethe), that's the goal. I still feel I have plenty of time to play. I feel great, so that's the next target," he added.
Grobler is also the joint-top leading goalscorer in the current DStv Premiership season, tied with Mamelodi Sundowns striker Peter Shalulile on nine goals.
