The Chipolopolo forward netted his seventh goal for his Russian side on Sunday and he reveals his desire to claim the top scorer prize

Zambia's Fashion Sakala says he is targeting the top scorer gong after scoring his seventh goal of the season for Spartak Moscow B on Sunday.

The 20-year-old's 73rd minute strike was his side's third goal of the clash against Tyumen and his seventh in 15 matches this season - eight behind leading scorer Andrey Kozlov.

Before the Zambian forward grabbed his goal, Sylvanus Nimely and Aleksandr Lomovitsik had put the hosts 2-0 up but Vladimir Leshonok grabbed a consolation for the visitors.

"I really feel good to score. It’s my job to score goals which many people know me for and I thank God for the goal," Sakala told Goal.

"I'm having a good form with a good dream of going higher and moving to another level. It means a lot to the team as we have moved to eighth position of the table and we hope to work extra hard and win more games.

"I hope to remain focused and working harder aside putting everything in God's hand and my target is to become the top scorer of the league."

The victory takes Dimtry Gunko’s side to eighth position on the log with 30 points from 19 matches and they will face third-placed Orenburg in their next encounter on October 29.
