Southampton's Guly do Prado celebrates 100th league game in English footballSouthampton's do Prado celebrates again
Guly do Prado has been on the periphal of Mauricio Pochettino's first team squad this season but on Tuesday night he contributed towards Southampton's Premier League victory over Hull City and reached a personal milestone of his own.
The Brazilian attacker came on in the 76th minute at the KC Stadium, his longest run out in the Premier League this season, and helped his side earn a 1-0 win, in addition to nearly adding a second.
He had a goal bound effort cleared off the line but the 32-year-old still had reason to celebrate as it was his 100th league appearance for the Saints.
He moved to England in August 2010, initially on a loan which was made permanent five months later, and has enjoyed huge success at St Mary's since.
The Brazilian has played a key role in helping Southampton get promoted from League One, the third tier of English football, to the Premier League. He scored 19 league goals in the Saints successful promotion campaign's and will hope to start proving his worth in the top flight of English football.
Last season do Prado made 18 appearances as the Saints established themselves in the Premier League but this league campaign he has only come off the bench six times.
However, three of those run outs have come in 2014 and he also scored in the FA Cup win against Yeovil Town recently.
The former Catania man will now hope to get a chance in the league and finally score that elusive first Premier League goal.
