HWANGE coach Nation Dube has implored veteran striker and Zifa Southern Region top goal scorer Gilbert Zulu to remain level-headed and not chase personal glory as the 2018 season draws to a close.
Nine matches remain before the curtain comes down and the eventual winners grab the sole ticket to play in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League next season.
Experienced striker Zulu leads the top goal scorer chart with 14 goals and has been carrying the team in its quest to make a quick return to top flight football.
“Gilbert has played in the Premiership before and is practically a Hwange son as he has been with the club for well over 10 years so he understands the pressure that comes with playing for the team. It’s good that he is scoring and might finish the overall top goal scorer but it’s important that he stays level-headed for the remainder of the season.
“Achieving (winning the league title) as a team is way important than personal glory,” said Dube.
In past seasons First Division strikers have failed to hit the 20 goal mark, thus losing out on $300 that is on offer from Nokel Security Company.
Zulu needs at least 6 goals to reach the 20 goal mark. He must score at least a goal in each of the remaining nine matches.
