While Bocco is Azam’s talismanic striker whose credentials are well established, Kichuya is rising high after joining premiership stalwarts Simba.

Kichuya has been Simba’s most dependable player upfront and account more on not only scoring but also aassists.

The duo have opened a slim one goa difference with bulk of players who have so far managed three goals.

Six other players including Simba’s star signing of the season, Laudit Mavugo have scored three goals at the end of the sixth round of the league. These are Tanzania Prisons Rashid Mandawa, Ndanda FC’s Omar Mponda, Yanga’s Amisi Tambwe and Raphael Daud of Mbeya City.

Young Africans duo of Simon Msuva and Donald Ngoma who impressed in the previous seson are trailing with single goal apiece.

So far there is no player who have managed to score a hat-trick. Pace makers Simba who are at the top of the stsndings table have scored 12 goals and conceded two for aggregate of ten goals.
Second best in positive goal aggregate are holders Young Africans with seven after scoring eight and conceding the only goal at the hands of Stand United on Sunday. Yanga have so far proved to have tightest of teh defences having allowed one goal after 418 minutes of regulation play.

Bottom-placed Majimaji are leading the pack of slopy defenders who have conceded 15 goals while their strikers have scored paltry two in six appearances. Besides Maji maji, other teams that have proved to have blunt strikers include Toto African and Kagera Sugar that have scored only one goal in 540 minutes of regulation play.
