A genuine Golden Boot contender emerged in an up-and-down Round 6 for the Hyundai A-League's attacking aces.

Here's how the competition's leading hot shots stack up so far.

7 goals: Roy O'Donovan (Jets)

Made a convincing entry for miss of the season on Saturday but his scoring rate remains better than a goal a game.

The Irishman has been front and centre to Newcastle's startling rise from cellar-dwellers to table-toppers.

5 goals: Andrija Kaluderovic (Phoenix)

Proving a real handful at Westpac Stadium with four goals in his last two home outings.

His late brace against Perth Glory put the seal on Wellington's first win of the season and rocketed him into second on the scoring list.

4 goals: Bobo (Sydney FC), Oriol Riera (Wanderers), Ross McCormack (City)

It was tough going for Bobo and Riera as a lack of service left them with few opportunities to score.

McCormack did get on the scoresheet with an important penalty for City, but the Scottish striker squandered several chances in a frustrating afternoon at AAMI Park.
