Cape Town - Zambia legend Gift Kampamba has backed former team-mate Collins Mbesuma to bag the golden boot in the South African Absa Premiership this season.

Mbesuma, who played for Roan United during the early stages of his career, has been in scintillating form for Mpumalanga Black Aces this season, topping the scoring charts with five goals six league games.

If he follows through on Kampamba's promise, it would be the second time he has claimed the award in his career after scoring 35 goals for Kaizer Chiefs in the 2004/05 season.

"He has now got a lot of experience and he is positioning himself well in the box. He will again win the top scorer award like he did in 2005," Kampamba told Post Zambia website.

"What matters is the players that are feeding you with the balls and it looks like the combination is now good.

"His job is to score and if there are good midfielders dribbling and feeding him with balls like we have seen, then I can say that he is going to win the golden boot again."

Kampamba also hailed Chipolopolo coach George Lwandamina for recalling Mbesuma back to the national team earlier in the year.

"Calling him was a good decision. Mbesuma is a motivator and threat on the pitch. He also has the needed experience that was lacking at the national team level.

"He should continue praying, off and on the pitch as well as work hard."
