Oli Shaw’s eyes are firmly on bagging the league title – but he admits winning the Scottish Championship golden boot would be the icing on the cake.
Kilmarnock are four points clear of Arbroath as they gear up for a clash against Dunfermline on Saturday, and Rugby Park No 9 Shaw is aiming to catch Lichties hitman Michael McKenna in the goal-scoring charts.
McKenna is two ahead of Shaw’s 12 goals on 14, and the Killie striker would love to catch him knowing it would enhance Killie’s title bid.
The striker said: “I’m pretty pleased but I think I could have had a few more.
“But to be at this stage of the season and be past my personal target. It’s the best goalscoring campaign of my career so I have to be pleased.
“I wanted to get to double figures and I have done now. I am just trying to get as many as I can until the end of the season.
“I don’t have a target anymore, it is about getting the club promoted and helping the team.

“I would love to be top scorer in the league but Michael McKenna of Arbroath is there right now.

“The way we are playing and how I am gelling with Kyle Lafferty I hope to get a few more before the end of the season.
“It’s a battle between Killie and Arbroath for the title and Michael and I for top scorer.
“So there will be a few interesting weeks ahead.
“But we have to take it game by game and Dunfermline is next for us.
