Malawian Tabitha’s double boosts Golden Boot Chase in Chinese Women League

Malawian striker Tabitha Chawinga scored a double for Wuhan Jianga on Wednesday to boost her Chinese Women Super League Golden Boot credentials.

Tabitha scored for Wuhan Jianga as they beat her former employers Jiangsu Suning 6-0 to take her tally to eight goals from similar number of games.

Tabitha scored the opener for the hosts before Zhang Linyan added two more goals in quick succession, including from the penalty spot.

Linyan scored again to make it her hat trick before Ma Jun put the final nail on Suning’s coffin with the sixth strike.

Wuhan lead the 10-member log table on 24 points from eight straight winning games, five points ahead of the second placed Suning who have 19 points from eight games.

Shaanxi anchor the table with five points from seven games.

Chawinga was named Chinese Women’s League’s Player of the Year following an outstanding 2019-20 season at Suning.

She eventually crossed the floor to join her younger sister Temwa at Suning.

Temwa featured in Wednesday’s game in defence for Wuhan due to the absence of some defenders who are injured.
