Ntuli targets Golden Boot

READ: Cavin: The King has been good to us

Ntuli has four league goals and six in all competitions so far. 

Highlands Park’s Mothobi Mvala is currently leading the race for the Golden Boot with seven goals. 

"I still have time to add to my goals. With the club doing well and also not having injuries, it gives me more chances to score goals," Ntuli said. 

Ntuli has struck up a good partnership with Argentinean hitman Emiliano Tade, who is back from injury and has five league goals. 

"We've worked well together, we really missed him," Ntuli said. 

"We hope this Saturday he will be back to help the club in scoring more goals. As we know, he has been brilliant for us." 

Ntuli will look to add to his tally when Usuthu, who lost 3-2 to Polokwane City last weekend, host Highlands at King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi on Saturday night. 

"The game on the weekend, it is very important for us, especially after losing our first game of 2019," Ntuli said.   

"We are expected to win because we can't afford two losses in a row." 

Ntuli added: "We saw what they [Highlands] did against Orlando Pirates [a 2-2 draw in Soweto last weekend]. In football when so called small teams play against the ‘Big Three’, they always perform. It didn't surprise us. 

"As I said, we are well prepared and ready to face them."
