Nyasa Big Bullets striker Chiukepo Msowoya is on course to retain the 2016 TNM Super League Golden Boot Award, but Mafco’s Richard Mbulu is breathing on his neck.
Msowoya and Mbulu have scored five each in six and seven league games, respectively. However, getting past the 18-goal mark has been a challenge for domestic strikers since 2003.
Overall, Mbulu is the boss in the domestic scoring business having plundered an astonishing 21 goals in some 11 games, including 17 for the Presidential Cup.
Lying second on the league scorers’ chart is Bright Munthali having netted four in six games for Azam Tigers.
Munthali is at par on goals with Manasseh Chiyesa, Nelson Kangunje and Maxwell Salambula of Kamuzu Barracks, Civo United and Blue Eagles, respectively.
Placed third among the list of scorers are Mayeso Mphanje (MTV Max Bullets), Kuda Muyaba (Moyale Barracks) and Paul Phiri (Mafco).
Last season, Msowoya finished as a joint-top scorer with Red Lions’ Innocent Bokosi with 14 goals in 28 games, a figure which reflect general scoring struggles in Southern Africa leagues.
Zambian Collins Mbesuma has also won the Golden Boot with 14 goals in South Africa Premiership. Current Mozambique leading scorer is Nelito of Ferroviaro de Beira with eight goals.
