Flames striker Khuda Muyaba continued to set Glad Africa Championship ablaze when he scored a brace in Polokwane City FC’s 3-2 win over JDR Stars on Sunday.
The brace comes after he scored his first hat-trick for Polokwane in a 4-0 victory over Richards Bay FC last week Wednesday.
Muyaba is the leading goal-scorer in the second-tier league with six goals, two goals above second-placed Tiklas Thutlwa of Black Leopards.
The former Silver Strikers forward said he was in the best form ever.
“The sky is the limit for me. I will score more goals this season. I want to score 20 goals,” Muyaba, who joined Polokwane in 2020 after winning the TNM Super League golden boot award with 21 goals in 2019, said.
Following the victory, Polokwane have moved to second position on the log table with 11 points from six matches, just two points behind leaders Platinum City Rovers, who lost 2-0 to Pretoria Callies.
In the last two matches, Polokwane have scored seven goals, with Muyaba scoring five of them but the side has conceded two goals.
Flames coach Meck Mwase also praised Muyaba for his impressive form.
“He has great character. Khuda always wants to win. The best is yet to come from him this season,” Mwase said.
