Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates will battle it out again… this time for the Telkom Knockout awards.
Amakhosi won the coveted trophy on Saturday night after putting three past their archrivals, the Buccaneers, at the FNB Stadium. On Tuesday afternoon the Soweto giants will meet at Summer Place in Johannesburg for the awards. In the top goal scorer section there are four players, all from Pirates and Chiefs, who have each scored two goals. However, the judges will decide who impressed them most and he will walk away the winner. The R150 000 prize money for the top scorer will be put on ice, though, as none of the strikers scored a minimum of five goals. The winner will have to settle for R100 000.
