Warriors striker Prince Dube is scoring goals for fun to lead the Tanzanian Vodacom Premier League charts after banging in yet another gem on Saturday as his side Azam FC side beat KMC 2-1.
The former Highlanders’ forward has taken his tally to 14 goals and still leads the scorers chart with five games to go for Azam who are number three on the log table, trailing leaders Simba SC and Young Africans.
Dube scored a goal from the top drawer 11 minutes into the game after he received a long-searching ball from his defence before he beat his marker, raced into the penalty box, and unleashed a curler that eluded the KMC goalkeeper.
Only three weeks ago, Dube scored another beauty as Azam beat Young Africans.
With Dube on 14 goals, he is facing a serious challenge from Simba SC’s Meddie Kagere who has eleven goals and John Bocco who is on 10 goals but it is the quality of goals that the Zimbabwean is scoring that puts him miles ahead of the pack.
The Warriors striker, who is said to have attracted a lot of interest in South Africa and Europe could have scored more goals, but was out for six weeks due to a hand injury.
Simba SC, who are participating in the Caf Champions League, have nine games to go, giving Kagere and Bocco greater opportunities to overtake Dube.
Dube missed the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Botswana and Zambia due to injury.
He had been called for national duty for the World Cup qualifiers by Warriors coach Zdravko Logarušic.
The games were moved to September.
