Can Kariobangi Sharks produce another top scorer for the second year running?

This is the question on the lips of many Kenyan Premier League followers. With two matches still left on the card until the end of the season, top seven KPL leading scorers are separated only by three goals.

On that line is Kariobangi Sharks’ forward Erick Kapaito, who is just one goal shy of joint leading-scorers - Zoo FC midfielder Michael Madoya and Gor Mahia’s striker Jacques Tuyisenge, both on 13 goals.

Tuyisenge is currently struggling to regain his form after he picked a nagging injury mid-second leg while Madoyo lacks consistency. Kapaito, on the other hand, has scored six goals, a hat-trick for Sharks’ in the last two games.

The fact that Gor Mahia still has Mathare United and Tusker to tackle compared to Sharks, who also have a date with Chemelil Sugar, Kapaito is tipped as a strong candidate for the Golden Boot .

But even before Kapaito can even start thinking of the prestigious award, that is currently being held by his former teammate Masoud Juma (17), of immediate concerns for Sharks' star should be on how to catch pace with the leaders.

Cliff Nyakeya (Mathare United), Ezekiel Odera (AFC Leopards) and Nicholas Kipkurui (Zoo) also have 12 goals
