Mafoso takes on former employers

Mafoso takes on former employers

MASERU – Defending Econet premier League champions Bantu faceoff against Kick4Life at the Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) Ground this afternoon.
The sides go into the game separated by just a point on the log standings.
The game also marks the first time Bob Mafoso faces off against his former employers. Mafoso spent two seasons with the Mafeteng side winning two league titles as James Madidilane’s assistant coach before joining Kick4Life in June.
The two will meet as foes today.
Kick4Life are yet to lose under Mafoso after three games, winning one game and drawing twice. They will be looking to continue their unbeaten run against the champions who are trying to keep up with the pace-setters.

After trouncing Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) 3-0 over the weekend, ‘A Matšo Matebele’ seem to have rediscovered their rhythm which sets up an interesting tie between the two.
A game between the two sides is usually never short of entertainment on the field.
Another interesting game today is between league leaders Matlama and Liphakoe. ‘Tse Putsoa’ are one of the four teams that are yet to lose a game, they are on level points with Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) and Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS) with the three teams only separated by goal difference.
On the other hand, Liphakoe have had a good run in the league so far winning two games and losing just one. With the form Liphakoe are in, Matlama will have to dig deep to get maximum points against Quthing based side.

The football fiesta continues over the weekend with Bantu away at LCS, another mouth-watering clash. ‘Masheshena’ meet Likhopo today and are likely to gain maximum points which makes the game against Bantu even more difficult for both sides while Lioli is away at LMPS on Sunday. Matlama have an easier fixture on Sunday hosting struggling Galaxy.
