Victory goal-machine Besart Berisha has a healthy lead at the top of the Golden Boot race but with the striker set to miss a fortnight of football, the opportunity is there for the chasing pack to bridge the gap.

Berisha found the target again against Glory over the weekend – his 99th goal in the Hyundai A-League – but won’t play again until early April due to the split round and international commitments with Kosovo.

City superstar Bruno ‘El Tuna’ Fornaroli is his closest challenger and has two games up his sleeve to make up lost ground, as does Roar marksman Jamie Maclaren.

There are just five rounds remaining – four games for some teams – so we take a look at who’s in contention for the Nike Golden Boot award as the competition reaches its crescendo.

Besart Berisha produced an audacious piece of skill to set up Fahid Ben Khalfallah's goal in Melbourne Victory's win over Perth Glory.
Besart Berisha (Melbourne Victory, 18 goals)Just one strike away from the magical 100 goal mark in the A-League but won’t have a chance to add to that tally until April 2 when the Victory host Wellington Phoenix.

The marksman will have matches against Phoenix (home), Wanderers (away) and Central Coast (home) to boost his record before the end of the regular season.


Bruno Fornaroli netted 25 goals in 30 games in 2016.

Bruno Fornaroli (Melbourne City, 15 goals)Hasn’t been as lethal as he was in his maiden season in the A-League but still remains a prolific scorer and will fancy his chances of catching Bes over the next fortnight.

The City superstar is a real chance to jump to the top of the standings in Berisha’s absence with matches against Newcastle (home) and Wanderers (away) in the next two weeks.

Closes the season with games against Sydney FC (away), Adelaide (home) and Perth Glory (away).


Jamie Maclaren

Jamie Maclaren (Brisbane Roar, 13 goals)Will be hurting from his omission from the Caltex Socceroos squad and will want to prove a point in front of goal against Adelaide United on Sunday afternoon.

The Roar speedster has further games against Victory (home), Mariners (home), Glory (away) and Wellington (home) to add to his tally and improve on his 20-goal haul from last season.


Victory winger Marco Rojas says his side must be clinical in Friday's clash with Sydney FC.

Marco Rojas (Melbourne Victory, 12 goals)The ‘Kiwi Messi’ has been in scintillating touch this season and is arguably the best player in the competition this term with an incredible return of 12 goals and 11 assists.

The 25-year-old won’t play this week due to the split round and will miss Victory’s next fixture against Brisbane due to international commitments with New Zealand.

A long shot to catch his teammate with three games remaining but you just never know.


Sydney FC striker Bobo celebrates his winner against Victory on Friday night.

Bobo (Sydney FC, 11 goals)The classy Brazilian scored the winner against Victory a fortnight ago but is another to have the week off due to the split round.

Sydney’s even spread of goal-scorers has perhaps hurt the striker’s chances of individual honours but will have games against Glory (away), City (home), Phoenix (away) and Jets (home) to improve his output.


Wellington's Roy Krishna bursts onto the ball during the Boxing Day clash with Newcastle Jets.

Roy Krishna (Wellington Phoenix, 11 goals)The Fijian flyer has been the shining light in a largely disappointing season for the Phoenix, with his goals and overall work-rate a real highlight.

Will need to make the most of this weekend’s clash against Wanderers (away) with the striker to miss Wellington’s clash with Newcastle next week.


Adam Taggart celebrates after scoring against the Jets on Sunday afternoon.

Adam Taggart (Perth Glory, 11 goals)Another who’d be disappointed to miss the Socceroos squad, Taggart was frustrated in front of goal in Glory’s 4-1 loss to Victory on Saturday night.

His cause won’t be helped by a week off this weekend but Glory have three of their last four fixtures at home (Sydney, Brisbane, City) along with a trip to Adelaide to tackle the Reds in a fortnight.

Staff Writer
The search for the next wave of Caltex Socceroos continues to be cast far and wide with a 22-player Australian development squad to assemble in Spain for a training camp from 20-28 March 2017.

The nine day camp will be held in the Spanish region of Murcia at the Pinatar Arena and will also comprise two training matches against Austria and Finland’s national Under 21 teams.

Of the players selected by Caltex Socceroos Assistant Coach and Australian U23 Head Coach Josep Gombau and Young Socceroos Coach Ufuk Talay for the nine day camp, all except Newcastle Jets defender Nicholas Cowburn currently play in Europe.

With an array of young Australian players cutting their teeth in European leagues, the training camp provides an opportunity to unearth hidden gems, such as current Caltex Socceroos Massimo Luongo, Jackson Irvine and Bailey Wright who were relative unknowns playing abroad.

“A lot of players in this squad we haven’t worked with before so this camp allows us to bring them in and expose them to the national team setup and see the levels they are at and how they are tracking,” said Gombau.

“This is not just an Australian Under 23 squad, we are also bringing in some younger players and the main objective is to get to know all of them and see how they can fit into our system and bring them under the national team umbrella.

Burnley midfielder Aiden O'Neill.

“During the last four months Ufuk and myself have been keeping an eye on them and trying to get footage of their games, and from that we have brought in the players that we think have a good level and can fit into the style of how we want to play.”

“There is a five year gap between the oldest and youngest players coming into this camp so the main objective is to know these players and see if they can become potential Socceroos for the future.”

While Cowburn is the only current Hyundai A-League player in the squad, the likes of Thomas Deng, Alex Gersbach, Anthony Kalik, Awer Mabil and Stefan Mauk all plied their trade in the Hyundai A-league before heading overseas.

The selection of 18-year-old Adelaide United midfielder Riley McGree for the Caltex Socceroos’ upcoming FIFA World Cup Qualifiers illustrates the view of Caltex Socceroos Head Coach Ange Postecoglou and Gombau, who share a willingness to give young players the chance to prove themselves.

“This is an exciting process,” said Gombau.

“Our job is to try to build a strong Socceroos team in the future and our job is to try and find the best Australian players from around the world, regardless of where they are playing.

Alex Gersbach enjoyed success in the Norwegian Cup overnight.

“We need to try to know every single Australian player with potential and work hard to bring them in.”

“The most important thing is development and to see what these players can bring to the table.”

Left back Callum Elder, currently playing with Barnsley in England, and former Melbourne Victory midfielder Sebastian Pasquali who is at Ajax in Holland, are both unavailable due to injury.
