Battered Majantja in defiant mood

MASERU – Despite trailing 3-0 after the first leg of their Lesotho National Insurance Group (LNIG) Top 8 quarterfinal, Majantja insist they are down but not yet out.

While it is difficult to imagine Bantu throwing away such a healthy lead going into the second leg, Majantja say they are not going into Sunday’s return game in Maputsoe to roll over against ‘A Matšo Matebele’.

Majantja say they are going to try and do the unthinkable – turn the scoreline around and proceed to the semi-finals.
Speaking to thepost yesterday, Majantja spokesperson Tšepang Makakule said it will be financially beneficial for the club if they proceed to the next round.

He insisted the Mohale’s Hoek side would rather continue playing in the LNIG Top 8 than sitting at home and watching other teams play.
Despite their precarious position in the Econet Premier League where Majantja find themselves in the relegation zone, Makakule also insisted it is important for them as the club to give it their all on Sunday against their fancied opponents.
“If we can proceed it will give us motivation,” Makakule said.

“Being in this competition on its own gives us motivation already. I don’t think we played well last weekend (in the first leg). Looking at the goals we conceded, it is not going to be easy for us but we have to give it a go. We have to aim for the win. We want that money (from making it to the semi-finals), that’s why we are playing in cup games,” he said.

Makakule added: “We will have to change the game-plan this weekend, I would rather we keep playing than stay at home and watch other teams play.”

The Mohale’s Hoek side will still be without Thoriso ‘Musa who missed the first leg due to an injury.
Other than that, however, Makakule said everybody at the club is ready for Sunday’s titanic battle in Maputsoe.
