Battle of the boot resumes

2015-12-16 06:00

BETHLEHEM. – Andrea Fileccia of Free State Stars and Collins Mbesuma, deadly striker of Mpumalanga Black Aces, are the front-runners to finish 2015 as the Absa Premiership’s top scorer.

It has been another poor scoring return in the first third of the league season, but these strikers lead the way with six goals apiece, with just one more round of games to play this year.

Two wingers, Daine Klate and George Lebese, are next in line – with five goals each – followed by Nathan Paulse and Sibusiso Vilakazi on four, despite the Bidvest Wits star being far from a regular this season.

There are a host of players on three goals, including SuperSport United’s Jeremy Brockie, who has found the going tougher than last season.

Interestingly, the scorers of 2014-’15 are nowhere to be seen.

The Free State Stars’ Moeketsi Sekola has failed to find the back of the net, Lerato Lamola of Bloemfontein Celtic has just one, while Puleng Tlolane and ­Cuthbert Malajila are on two each.
