Nyasa Big Bullets’ Babatunde Adepoju’s efforts to win the TNM Golden boot award could be on the right track as he leads the scorers' chart, with two games left to wind up the first round.
The Nigerian has scored nine times inspiring his red side to a top finish in the first round of the league with 38 points, eight above their once-closest rivals, Blue Eagles FC.
On Sunday, Adepoju opened a two-goal gap over rival, Muhammad Sulumba of Mukuru Wanderers, after scoring the lone one against Kamuzu Barracks.
The other rivals are Trouble Kajani of Rumphi United and Stain Davie of Silver Strikers who have scored six each.
Chiukepo Msowoya of Wanderers, Bullets’ Patrick Mwaungulu, Christopher Gototo of Sable Farming FC, Charles Chipala Jr from Dedza Dynamos, and Royal Bokosi of Red Lions have five goals to their names.
Nine players have been lucky to send in four goals, and they include Schumaker Kuwali and Gaddie Chirwa from Blue Eagles, Chimwemwe Idana of Bullets, Mafco’s Zikani Sichinga, Raphael Phiri and Lloyd Njaliwa from Moyale, Wongani Lungu of Ekwendeni Hammers, and Clement Nyondo and Promise Kamwendo from Dedza Dynamos.
Babatunde missed the Goldenboot award to Hassan Kajoke last season while playing for Wanderers.
