Sibisi confident of passing Chamanga


Sibisi, who led the scoring charts early in the season, now has 11 goals, just three shy of leader James Chamanga of Moroka Swallows.

Interestingly, Sibisi’s Stars are up against Swallows on Wednesday night.

“With four games remaining, I realistically believe that I can still be the top scorer in my first season in the PSL. The biggest advantage that I have is that the team is back playing very well and our confidence is high.

“What is really important is that we should continue winning our games, with my goals coming in as a bonus,” says Sibisi.

Giving the slippery poacher hope of overtaking Chamanga is that he is feeling no pressure at all since he is chasing and not leading.

“My chances of overtaking Chamanga are very healthy because I am feeling no pressure at all. The one at the top is the one getting worried because when he looks over his shoulder he can see I am catching up to him. I am sure Chamanga is feeling a bit of pressure right now, if he still thinks he will win the award.

“But, even if I don’t win the award, I will be reasonably happy with 15 goals. Any striker who scores that many goals in our league should be satisfied,” says Sibisi.

In the last four seasons only Zambian striker Collins Mbesuma has won the top scorer award with more than 20 league strikes after banging in 25 goals while in the other three seasons 15 goals were enough to win the award.

Last season Chris Katongo won the accolade with 15 goals in half a season, while in the previous season 14 goals was enough for Mame Niang to lift the award.

In 2003-2004 season, Jackie Ledwaba scored 14 goals and won the award despite his club Zulu Royals getting relegated that season.
