As Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates will be playing in the much-anticipated Soweto Derby this weekend, Kermit Erasmus and Lehlohonolo Majoro will be hoping to score to keep up with Moeketsi Sekola on the goal scorers’ charts, if the two strikers are selected to play in Eric Tinkler’s team.
Both Erasmus and Majoro have scored eight goals each in the league so far this season.
Mamelodi Sundowns’ Cuthbert Malajila, Lerato Lamola from Bloemfontein Celtic, as well as Puleng Tlolane of Polokwane City have all scored eight goals each in the 2014/15 PSL campaign.
Sekola of Free State Stars scored his ninth goal of the season, during Stars 1-1 draw with Pirates on Wednesday.
Ironically, Erasmus had earlier scored for Bucs, when Sekola equalised with a cracker of a goal at the Charles Mopeli Stadium.
With the current season edging closer to the final stages with each and every game, the strikers at the big three will be eager to give Sekola a run for his money for a chance to win the top goal scorer award at the end of the campaign.
Mandla Masango is the closest player from Kaizer Chiefs on the top half of the league’s top scorers with his six strikes so far this season.
Chiefs’ Bernard Parker was the recipient of the Absa Premiership top goal-scorer ward last season. He is currently on three goals this season.
