Peter Shalulile chasing incredible scoring records as Mamelodi Sundowns chase record title

accreditation

For the team, they will be keen to stretch their unbeaten start to the season going to 13 games against an opponent which has been fading of late managing a mere two points out of 12 while also preserving their proud defensive record.

Then with the man trusted with delivering the goals that win matches he has a personal target to reach which is to get into double figures.

Shalulile has nine league goals at present and finds himself one shy of getting to 10 – the minimal target usually set by strikers worth their value in the domestic game.

His goals have come against the who is who of this league from Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, SuperSport United and Swallows.   

The Namibian is on course for his quickest dash to double figures since arriving in the PSL as he continues to set domestic football alight and prove that there are benefits to being a hard worker even when you are not the most talented of footballers.

The 28-year-old has been so incredibly impressive wearing Sundowns colours that he is on course to improve the tally of 15 league goals (22 in all competitions) from last season having already reached gone past half of that goals tally.

Last season he only got to double figures at game number 24 of the season before a late rush had him add four in the last two games of the season.

The previous season at Highlands Park he was only in double figures after 22 games. 

At Sundowns he is on 34 goals since joining at the beginning of last season with his scoring prowess running at a rate better than that of the best strikers to ever play for the club in Daniel Mudau, Katlego Mphela and Raphael Chukwu.
