The Cameroonian striker is leading the goal king race but he must shrug off competitions from Yaw Annor and Augustine Okrah who are closing in on him
Asante Kotoko striker Mbella Etouga is still leading the Ghana Premier League goalscoring chart after matchday 27.
The 20-year-old scored the match winner over the weekend against WAFA to help Kotoko open a nine-point gap with seven matches remaining.
Although, Yaw Annor scored a haul (four goals) against Berekum Chelsea in their 5-1 drubbing of the Bono Ahafo side, Etouga is still leading the race.
The Cameroonian has 18 goals, two goals ahead of Yaw as the race heatings to the topmost.
Also, there is Augustine Okrah of Bechem United fame who is gradually getting in goals week in and out.
The 28-year-old won the award in 2014 and he is hoping to win it for the second time. Currently, Okrah has 13 goals, five goals behind Etouga but since he has scored six goals in his last six games for Bechem, he obviously cannot be ruled out.
Etouga will come against Aduana Stars at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium next weekend before he faces Yaw Annor in the Asante derby against Ashanti Gold at the Len Clay Sports Stadium in Obuasi.
