FORMER Simba Bhora striker, Tinashe ‘Maswera’ Balakasi, is tipping the club’s forward, Tymon Machope, to win the Castle Lager Premiership Golden Boot.

Balakasi left Simba Bhora earlier this season to join Botswana’s top-flight side, Orapa United.

This duo netted a combined 18 goals last season.

Machope joined Simba Bhora from ZIFA Eastern Region Division side Midway and scored seven times in 11 games.

The 30-year-old has recorded four goals in 11 matches this campaign.

He has been the spearhead in coach, Tonderai Ndiraya’s offensive department.

Captain Walter Musona has also weighed in with three goals, which have thrust the miners into third place on the league standings.

Balakasi has finished as Simba Bhora’s top goalscorer during his three-year stay at the club from their time in the Division Two to PSL.

“I enjoyed my partnership with Machope, he was a good partner who knew where I wanted the ball, that’s why maybe we scored a lot of goals after the mid-season break in 2023.

“I don’t think his form has dipped but I believe he is still getting used to the new players who arrived at the start of the season.

“He is a player who can give you unexpected goals and now that he is playing a full season, I’m tipping him to win the Golden Boot,” said Balakasi.

Simba Bhora are making their third visit to the City of Kings this season.

They lost 0-1 against Highlanders and Bulawayo Chiefs.

Ndiraya’s men have failed to score a goal against Chicken in two attempts.

They will have another chance to end their unwanted record against the Gamecocks this Sunday.
