LDF’s gaffer speaks on Mohloai’s injury

MASERU – Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) coach Motheo Mohapi says Koete Mohloai’s injury is not as bad as initially feared and the midfielder could be available to play this weekend when ‘Sohle-Sohle’ take on Linare at the Maputsoe DIFA Stadium.

Mohloai appeared to have suffered a serious injury in a collision with Liphakoe goalkeeper Tankiso Chaba during an Econet Premier League tie between the two sides on Sunday at Ratjomose.
Mohloai was immediately carted off the field and Chaba shown a straight red card for the incident.

The hosts could not use their man advantage to claim all three points against Liphakoe as the dramatic game ended in a goalless draw.
LDF’s main concern afterwards, however, was the health of Mohloai who has been a key part of the army side’s fine start to the Econet Premier League season which sees them in fourth place after nine games.

Speaking on Tuesday, Mohapi said Mohloai only suffered a minor abdominal injury which should not take a long time to heal.
Mohapi said the midfielder should be available to join LDF’s preparations for Saturday’s match against Linare.
“He had a minor injury to his stomach but it should not take a long time to heal,” Mohapi said.

“Maybe he could be available for our next match. He is doing well and he will start the preparations for our next game with the team soon.”
LDF have 16 points, four points behind first placed Lesotho Correctional Service. The Ratjomose side have kept themselves in the top four for most of this first round largely thanks to a miserly defence that has only conceded four goals in nine games.
