Mphela believes he can catch Musona

News

'Killer' has been back in full training for the past week and is hoping to end a spell of more than a month on the sidelines against Mpumalanga Black Aces on Saturday.    After 17 goals last season, Mphela has just two to his name this term and has seen Amakhosi's 'Smiling Assassin' take his tally to five – one behind current leader Aces' Mpho Maleka.   But despite trailing by three, the 25-year-old from Mamelodi Sundowns still believes he can make up the deficit.       _quote         "My target is still the same as it always has been – to score more goals than I did last season, but having been injured for a few matches that will be hard.   "However, if I can stay fit for the rest of the season then there's no reason I can't do that and win the trophy again," he told KickOff.com.   "The competition is really tough this season and a few guys are doing well. Musona's a good player that doesn't just score goals, he creates them too. We've seen this season how talented he is and I would rate him as my main threat."   Killer added: "I'd say he's the best striker in the League at the moment because he always causes so many problems for defenders when he plays. But it's always about consistency so we will have to see who comes out on top."   Saturday's match against Aces will give Sundowns an opportunity to briefly move four points clear of second-placed Chiefs, who play Vasco da Gama in a later kick-off.    Mphela revealed he is ready to return to action but could not confirm if he would definitely be in the starting line-up.   "I've been training all week so we'll have to see what the coach decides.  They have had mixed results since I've been away but I'm happy to be back to try and help the team."
