The Tampines Rovers striker bagged two goals in his team's last match to top the scoring charts, but Woodlands Wellington striker has joined him there as wellThe race for the S.League Golden Boot this year has been a tight one, with four players leading the goalscoring charts with 13 before Monday night's round of games and a few others trailing with one less.
Tampines Rovers striker Aleksandar Duric was picked by a majority of Goal Singapore readers (47.5%) to win the Golden Boot, being one of those on 13, and it looks like our readers are astute with their observations.
The 42-year-old struck twice against Woodlands Wellington as the Stags emerged 6-3 winners in an incredible game, taking his tally to 15 and two clear of the pack.
But Rams forward Moon Soon Ho bagged a hat-trick himself as well and that propelled him to 15 goals, making him joint-top with Duric. If things stay that way, it looks like both will have to share the award, unless the league decides to select a winner based on who has played less games.
Only two players are still realistically in with a chance of catching Moon and Duric: Geylang International captain Jozef Kaplan, who garnered 12.5% of the votes, the second highest, and Warriors FC hotshot Mislav Karoglan (2.5%).
Both have 13 goals and will have the chance to add to that when Geylang travel to Brunei DPMM this Wednesday, while Warriors host Harimau Muda on Tuesday night.
In any case, the Golden Boot-winning tally looks set to fall short of last season's 20 from Frederic Mendy, who has since left Home United for Portuguese side Estoril Praia. The season before, Karoglan bagged a stunning 33 goals to easily win the award.
