Alimi and Mbaoma in Tight Race for NPFL Top Scorer Award

Two of the top strikers in the 2023/24 Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) season, Sikiru Alimi of Remo Stars and Chijioke Mbaoma of Enyimba, are currently engaged in a fierce battle for the coveted top scorer award.

Alimi, the Remo Stars striker, has taken a significant step towards the prize by netting a brace in his team’s 2-0 victory over Niger Tornadoes last weekend. This impressive performance has taken his goal tally to 14 for the season so far.

Mbaoma, the Enyimba counterpart, has managed to equal Alimi’s goal count by scoring from the penalty spot in Enyimba’s 1-0 win over Katsina United at their home ground in Aba on Sunday.

The two prolific strikers are expected to continue their pursuit of the individual accolade in the remaining matches of the campaign. Alimi holds a slight advantage, as Remo Stars have seven games left in the season, while Enyimba have six games remaining.

The battle for the top scorer award promises to be an exciting and closely contested affair, with both Alimi and Mbaoma demonstrating their goal-scoring prowess throughout the season. Fans and football enthusiasts will be eagerly following the developments as the two strikers strive to claim the coveted individual honor.
