SA star chasing Golden Boot abroad

SA Players Abroad

Former SuperSport United striker Darren Smith inched one goal closer to getting his hands on a Golden Boot award abroad, while Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau and Ethan Chislett were also on target.

Darren Smith & Ayabulela Konqobe

Former SuperSport United striker Smith continued his fine form for Finnish Ykkonen side Ekenas IF over the weekend when he netted his eighth goal of the campaign. The 24-year-old's latest strike puts him in contention for this season's Golden Boot award, where he currently trails Jaro's Anthony Olusanya by just two strikes.

Fellow South African Ayabulela Konqobe also featured in the match as Ekenas claimed a 2-0 win over Kokkolan Palloveikot to climb to third place in the league standings, six points shy of a spot in this season's promotion play-offs to the top division.

Percy Tau

Tau delivered another impressive performance on Sunday when he won a penalty during Anderlecht's 2-0 Jupiler Pro League victory over Cercle Brugge. The 26-year-old has now played a hand in four goals this season, scoring twice and winning two penalties for Vincent Kompany's side. 

Kurt Abrahams

In Belgium's second division, Abrahams started and played nearly the full match as Westerlo recorded their first win of the campaign, climbing to third on the log standings following an impressive a 2-0 away victory over RFC Seraing.

Keagan Dolly

Bafana Bafana midfielder Keagan Dolly received another chance from the bench when he featured as a late substitute for Montpellier during the club's 3-1 Ligue 1 win over OGC Nice. The former Mamelodi Sundowns star has now featured twice this season after missing the majority of the 2019/20 campaign through injury.

Luke Le Roux & Tashreeq Matthews

Le Roux continued to solidify his status as one of the first names on the team sheet at Varberg with another strong performance in the club's 3-2 Allsvenskan win over Mjallby, while countryman Matthews, who is on loan from Borussia Dortmund, was an unused substitute.

Siyanda Xulu

Xulu started for Hapoel Tel Aviv on Sunday, but was unable to prevent his side from suffering a 2-0 defeat to Ashdod. The Israeli outfit have now extended their winless to run to five matches.
