Sundowns on brink of PSL record



Mamelodi Sundowns have a chance to celebrate a considerable achievement at a time of some turmoil by setting a goal scoring landmark in the Premier Soccer League.

A goal on Wednesday away at Free State Stars inched Sundowns closer to become the first club to reach 750 goals in the PSL. They need three more to achieve the feat with a home game to come against Black Leopards at Atteridgeville on Sunday.

Sundowns have the second most blunt attack in the league this season with eight goals from their 13 matches to date, but it has lifted their overall tally since the league’s start in 1996 to 747 goals.

But if they do not achieve a hat trick of goals on Sunday they will still have time to get closer to the mark, ahead of their closest two challengers.

They are nine goals ahead of Orlando Pirates on the all-time PSL scoring chart, now on 738 after scoring 18 times this season.

Chiefs, whose tally of 27 goals in 13 league games is the most by any club this season, have move up to 732 goals from 517 matches since the formation of the PSL.
