Cape Town - Polokwane City spokesperson Vusi Mtimane says the club are fully in support of striker Rodney Ramagalela in his pursuit of the Absa Premiership's top goalscorer award.

The forward is seemingly in a three-horse race with Mamelodi Sundowns' Percy Tau as well as Baroka's Gift Motupa. Ramagalela has 11 goals while Tau has 10 and Motupa is on nine strikes in the league. 

Meanwhile, SuperSport United's Evans Rusike and Sundowns' Khama Billiat are still mathematically in the hunt for the gong as well with eight and seven strikes respectively. 

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, Mtimane said: "Rodney is firmly focused on helping the club to finish in the highest possible position on the table. Even you were to speak to him, he would tell you that the club comes first. 

"However, as a club, it would be nice to have one of our own players win such an important accolade. If you look at how the team is playing, you can see the support the other players give to Ramagalela by the assists they provide to him. 

"Just as he supports the ambition of the club, the rest of the players also support him in his quest of finishing as the league's top goalscorer." 

Nonetheless, with City having five matches left to play before the end of the season, it appears that the 29-year-old is in pole position to claim the PSL's top scorer crown for the first time in his career.
