Cape Town - The Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot award is up for grabs in the final weekend of the Absa Premiership, with a host of names gunning for the award.
Last season's recipient, Moeketsi Sekola, ended the PSL season with 14 goals while the 2013/14 campaign belonged to Bernard Parker, who netted only 10 goals.
The current campaign sees five unlikely names hoping to finish this weekend with the best tally.
Mpumalanga Black Aces forward, Collins Mbesuma, is leading the pack on 14 goals - the veteran forward is having one of his best seasons in the Premiership - hoping to captain his side to a third-place finish this weekend. AmaZayoni face Free State Stars on Saturday, (May 21) with Muhsin Ertugral looking to secure a place in next season's CAF Confederation Cup.
Rising Ajax Cape Town star, Prince Nxumalo, is on Mbesuma's tail with 13 goals and daring to dream of claiming the Lesley Manyathela trophy on May 30. The forward has experienced quite a surreal season having dealt with niggling injuries and an epileptic attack earlier in the campaign. The Urban Warriors welcome PSL runners-up Bidvest Wits to Cape Town Stadium on the final day.
Thobani Mncwango of Polokwane City forced his name among the top five with 12 goals and with his exploits, Shakes Mashaba has granted him a call-up to the latest Bafana Bafana squad to take on Gambia in 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier. Rise and Shine take on Bloemfontein Celtic at the Dr Molemela Stadium where the 29-year-old will look to end his season off on a high.
The last two vying for the Golden Boot are Jeremy Brockie (SuperSport United) and Khama Billiat (Mamelodi Sundowns) with 11 goals each. United have back-to-back encounters against Orlando Pirates with the Nedbank Cup final being staged on May 28.
Brockie will hope to guide his side to a top 8 finish in hope that the University of Pretoria take points from Golden Arrows.
Billiat is seeking to break a PSL record with Sundowns as Pitso Mosimane's side look to finish the season off with 71 points. The Brazilians face Platinum Stars, who is hoping to overcome the PSL Champions and secure a third place finish.
All the Absa Premiership matches are scheduled to start at 15:00 on Saturday, May 21.
