Mamelodi Sundowns v Golden Arrows: Peter Shalulile starts in quest for Golden Boot record

Mamelodi Sundowns’ star striker Peter Shalulile has been named to start against Golden Arrows in their DStv Premiership clash on Tuesday, 12 April.

Kick-off is at 15:00.

Namibia’s Shalulile needs seven more DStv Premiership goals in the final six matches of Mamelodi Sundowns’ 2021/22 season to tie the all-time goal scoring mark for a single season.

Thanks to a hat-trick against Swallows last Wednesday, Shalulile took his tally for the season to 18, four more than closest rival Victor Letsoalo of Royal AM.

The record all-time highest single season goal scoring mark is currently held by Zambia’s Collins Mbesuma who scored 25 goals in helping Kaizer Chiefs to the 2004/05 title.

Peter Shalulile’s tally is already the highest since the 2011/12 season when Swallows’ Siyabonga Nomvethe walked away with the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot honours for his 20 goals.

Mamelodi Sundowns do have some tricky opponents to play in their final six matches of the season, but we won’t be betting against Shalulile adding to his tally!
