Matthews Sibale, Mphatso Philimon lead in scoring
Despite that Silver Strikers have not won in three consecutive TNM Super League games, their striker Matthews Sibale is proving to be a prolific scorer.
Sibale once again came to the rescue of Silver in Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Dwangwa United at Chitowe Ground, to take his tally to 10 goals.
Sibale also scored in the previous 1-0 win over Premier Bet Wizards and in a 1-1 draw against Masters Security FC.
The burly striker is now the league’s joint leading scorer with 10 goals from 19 games, at par with Mphatso Philimon of Blue Eagles.
Previous leading scorer Luke Chima from Azam Tigers has eight goals, one goal ahead of Jack Chiona who scored for Dwangwa from the penalty spot on Sunday.
Wizards’ Mischeck Botomani and Raphael Phiri of Civil Sporting Club have also seven goals followed on six goals by team-mates, Vincent Nyangulu, Joseph Kachule and Blantyre United’s Jimmy Mbandambanda.
Silver are winless in two games running.
Interestingly, there is no Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers’ player in the top-five bracket of the top scorers.
This decade, no Super League player has scored 20 goals, a factor attributed to lack of proper development of strikers and a long-ball game that render creative midfielders irrelevant.
