Premier League back in business

Premier League back in business

MASERU – After a long Christmas break the Econet Premier League finally returns this weekend.
It is the halfway stage and all 13 premier league teams have played 12 games heading into the all-important second half of the 2017/18 Lesotho football season.

Because of Sundawana’s expulsion from the league in November, the number of teams left contesting the league this season has been reduced to 13 which means every weekend one side will sit out of the action.
This weekend it is Lioli.

‘Tse Nala’ are second on the log behind Bantu who now have an opportunity to widen the gap to seven points on Sunday with a victory over Sefotha-fotha. Lioli will return to action on February 4 when they welcome Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) to Teyateyaneng.
In arguably the weekend’s hardest match to call, Lesotho Mounted Police Service (LMPS) are set to renew their rivalry with Lesotho Correctional Service (LCS) at Police Training College (PTC) Ground on Sunday.

When the teams met in the first round they played to a goalless draw. This time, however, both teams will be desperate for all three points for differing reasons.  LMPS find themselves outside the top eight bracket while fifth-placed ‘Masheshena’ are gunning for a top four place.
In another intriguing match-up, Linare will be looking for revenge when they host Majantja at the Maputsoe DiFA Stadium on Saturday after losing the first round tie to the league’s new boys by a narrow 1-0 scoreline.

Weekend fixtures:

Saturday (kick offs at 15:00)
Linare vs. Majantja (Maputsoe DiFA Ground)
LMPS vs. LCS (PTC)
Sky Battalion vs. Kick4Life (LCS)
Sunday (kick offs at 15:00 unless stated)
Sefotha-fotha vs. Bantu (PTC)
Liphakoe vs. Matlama (Quthing at 13:00)
LDF vs. Likhopo (Ha Ratjomose)
