CAPE TOWN - Stellenbosch FC forward Waseem Isaacs has vowed to score 13 or more goals for his team in the Absa Premiership campaign.

The 29-year-old finished last season's National First Division campaign as the second-highest goal scorer with 13 goals, six behind club mate Iqraam Rayners.

Isaacs is currently on eight Absa Premiership goals this season after nineteen matches for the Stellenbosch-based side.

The 11th-placed Stellenbosch will host Polokwane City (15th) on Saturday at the Cape Town Stadium.

Isaacs admitted that coming to the PSL, he had set himself a target for goals he wanted to score.

"I told myself I want to score more than what I've scored last season. I scored 13, so I told myself I want more or at least the same," said Isaacs.

"Physically I had to be better than I was last season - and mentally because it was a huge step for me in my career - NFD [GladAfrica Championship] and PSL (Premier Soccer League) are totally different."

Isaacs said that head coach Steve Barker plays a huge role in his career.

"Coach plays a big role for me because he has confidence in me and always believes I can do better," continues Isaacs.

"He believes I can go on and be a top goal goalscorer in the league."
