Gold Coast United striker Shane Smeltz got back into goalscoring mode on the weekend to take his season tally to a landmark 10 goals. The New Zealand international scored the winner in the 56th minute against Perth Glory and has been by far the best striker of the current A-League season and leads the league goalscoring by an impressive five goals after round 11.
The trio have a load of work in front of them if they want to take the A-League Golden Boot award off the high-flying Smeltz who won the award last year by scoring 12 goals.
