Coming in hot at the top of our list is Remo Stars, who have been lighting up the NPFL with their attacking prowess. 

With an impressive 27 goals to their name, they're not only putting balls in the back of the net but also making a serious push for the title.

It's a tie for third place between Plateau United and Abia Warriors, both boasting a respectable 24 goals. 

While Plateau United currently sit sixth on the table, Abia Warriors are holding their own in the tenth spot. 

Plateau United duo Daniel Itodo and Mustapha Yaga are key men for United.

With both teams hungry for success, expect fireworks as they battle it out on the field!

Despite being a top-scoring side in the NPFL, United find themselves languishing in the nineteenth spot, while Pillars are making waves in fourth place. 

And with Bayelsa losing their top scorer, Robert Mizo, there could be trouble on the horizon for the South South team.

Rounding out our list are the Pride of Benue, Lobi Stars and Shooting Stars, both with 22 goals apiece.
