Mighty Be Forward Wanderers Striker Babatunde Adepoju and Silver Strikers forward Khuda Muyaba are now tied on 14 goals on the TNM Super League top scorers chart.

This was when Adepoju was at 10 goals and on the other hand, Muyaba had just scored his seventh goal.
“Seven goals… Never give up. You are still on 10 goals Babatunde. Watch out,” Muyaba posted on his Facebook page.
