Bidvest Wits midfielder Gift Motupa believes he can beat Mwape Musonda to the top scorer award


Motupa has bagged nine league goals this season and is just three strikes behind top scorer Mwape Musonda of Black Leopards. The 24-year-old has 11 goals in all competitions.

Six of the nine league goals Motupa has scored have come in the second half of the season, so he has the momentum going for him right now to challenge Musonda for the Golden Boot award.

With six matches to go for the Clever Boys, Motupa cannot be ruled out of overtaking Musonda.

"Yes, looking at the remaining games I feel there is still an opportunity [to finish as top scorer]," the former Baroka FC and Orlando Pirates player said.
"I just need to work hard and be consistent," he added.

After getting knocked out of the Nedbank Cup by Chippa United over the weekend, the Cleves Boys will turn their focus to League action when they take on Soweto giants Orlando Pirates at Bidvest Stadium on Saturday.

Motupa, who was on the score sheet against the Chilli Boys, would not doubt want to find the back of the net against his former side.
