Baroka FC defender Mzwanele Mahashe still heads the 2016 Telkom Knockout goalscorers charts heading into Saturday’s final between SuperSport United and Cape Town City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.
Mahashe has scored three times in this year’s competition, but his Baroka side were ousted from the competition in the quarterfinals and has been unable to add to his tally.
One goal back is City’s Sibusiso Masina, the only other player in the Telkom Knockout to score more than once this year.
But another seven players from Cape Town City have got a single goal in the competition, a sign of how the club have shared the scoring responsibility around this season.
Amazingly, SuperSport have reached the final with only one goal scored by one of their players! Thabo Mnyamane netted the winner against Orlando Pirates in the semifinals.
Before that an own goal from Ajax Cape Town’s Eric Chipeta saw them past the Last 16, before they defeated Mamelodi Sundowns on penalties following a 0-0 draw in the quarterfinals.
