Glo Premier League top scorer race hots up as Ejike leads

06 July 2015, 16:45

Lagos - Enyimba's Mfon Udoh may see his record of 23 goals in a season in the Glo Premier League broken if the chase by inform strikers from Heartland, Giwa FC, Abia Warriors and Sunshine Stars continue to get goals each week.

Heartland FC (Owerri) forward, Bright Ejike has maintained his goal scoring form as he got yet another goal in Kaduna where the Naze Millionaires lost 2-1 to Giwa FC (Jos). Ejike has now scored nine goals in the sixteen weeks old NPFL while Giwa's striker, Shuaibu Ibrahim who had earlier in the season informed News24 that he's eyeing a 30 goal mark in the NPFL this term got his eight goal.

The chase for the top scorer this term has been kept healthy this term; Sunshine Stars striker, Tunde Adeniji who got his team's only goal in their 1-1 draw in Makurdi against Lobi Stars is tied on seven goals with skillful Abia Warriors forward, Chisom Elvis Chikatara.

Both Mustapha Ibrahim( El-Kanemi Warriors) and Ocheme Edoh (Giwa FC) are locked on six goals while  Esosa Igbinoba (Nasarawa United), Adamu Mohammed (Kano Pillars), Gbolahan Salami (Warri Wolves) and Ndifreke Effiong (Abia Warriors) are on five goals.

Though Mfon Udoh has been missing in Enyimba's line up in as many games but he still has four goals this term along side Christian Obiozor whose consistency for the People's Elephant may see him baring any injury or loss of form rank amongst the top scorers this season.

There are a host of players on four goals each;  Markson Ojobo (Enyimba), Usman Mohammed (FC Taraba), Ubong Ekpai (Kano Pillars), Yusuf Jaiyeola (Sharks), Junior Ajayi (3SC), Godwin Obaje (Wikki Tourist), Segun Alebiosu (Kwara United) and Mubarak Umar (Wikki).
