Highlands Park striker Peter Shalulile is looking to extend his goal scoring tally when his team clashes with Mamelodi Sundowns at Lucas Moripe Stadium tonight (7.30pm).
Shalulile is celebrating his 27th birthday and a goal against the reigning champions will no doubt be a great present.
“Playing against Sundowns is already a motivation because its one of the best teams in Africa,” Shalulile told FARPost.co.za.
“What we hope for in the game today is either a draw or a win because it’s not easy beating Sundowns, but we’ll try our level best that we give them a hard time,” said the Namibian.
The striker is currently the top goal scorer in the Absa Premiership with 6 goals in 6 matches and would like to win the PSL Golden Boot.
“With God’s grace and His time, I believe if I keep on having this form and without injuries then I believe I will get it. I am up against quality players that are also chasing the top goal scorer award.”
