The Nedbank Cup's leading goal scorer, AmaZulu striker Dumisani "Makhokhoba" Ngwenya, is eyeing the top goal scorer award and is almost certain that the R100000 prize money is in the bag.

Ngwenya has scored seven goals so far in the tourney.

"With us still participating in the competition, I can safely say that the first prize is mine," he said. "I have worked hard this season and I think I deserve it.

"We will be playing Black Leopards on Sunday and I might get a chance to increase the lead. When such opportunities present themselves, I will grab them and score goals," he said.

Ngwenya and strike partner Siyabonga Mkhwanazi have proved to be a deadly combination this season, scoring 17 goals between them. Mkhwanazi has scored four goals in the tournament and Ngwenya says this is not creating any tension.

"We are both professionals with the same purpose, which is to see our team winning and we will not compromise that. Our team consolidating its position on the log, as we want to be in the top eight bracket, and winning this cup are our main priorities and we will fulfill those priorities."

Coach, Clive "The Dog" Barker described the two as fantastic.

"I can tell you that they will prove themselves in the tournament," he said.

Team manager James Dlamini said they were happy that Ngwenya has extended his stay at the club until 2011.
