Sefotha-fotha stun LCS

MASERU – Lesotho Correctional Service’s (LCS) Econet Premier League title hopes suffered a crushing blow after they were stunned 1-0 by lowly Sefotha-fotha at Police Training College (PTC) on Wednesday afternoon.
The game that was originally postponed due to bad weather conditions two weeks ago and ‘Masheshena’ were expected to pick up the three points they needed to keep track in the title race.
Instead LCS have missed a golden opportunity to put Matlama under pressure after the log leaders dropped points against Bantu last Saturday.

Sefotha-fotha took the lead in the first half through Tanki Seoli and they held on despite LCS threatening to equalise.
For Mpitsa Marai and his charges it is a missed opportunity, while Bafokeng Mohapi hailed his game plan going into the game.
Mohapi said the game went exactly as they had planned and was delighted with three points saying it keeps them closer to their dream of finishing in the top eight.

LCS are back in action again this weekend against Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) and they will be looking bounce from today’s disappointment.
“It is very important because last we won and took three points; it keeps us closer to teams in front of us and to see if we can also get a spot in the Top 8.

Our target is to be in the Top 8, we had other opportunities to score more than one goal but my players did not realise that it’s the chance they have used especially in the first half, you see a player wanting to take extra touches and play the ball for a long time, in a situation where he should have just played the ball and shoot they want to take many touches and they end up taking it away from him, but if we were quick perhaps we could have gotten the second goal,” he said.

“We are playing LMPS next and in every game we go with the intention to win, have confidence now after winning two games in a row but these are two different teams, and they play differently we have to prepare ourselves and we prepare ourselves based on our strengths,” he said

There is another big clash this weekend between Matlama and Kick4Life, both teams meet after losing their games last weekend and they are both looking to get back to winning ways, Matlama cannot afford to drop anymore points at this stage as it could effectively put their league tittle dreams in jeopardy.

Weekend’s fixtures:
Saturday (15:00)
Galaxy vs. Swallows (DIFA Maputsoe)
Majantja vs. Likhopo (Mohale’s Hoek)
Kick4Life vs. Matlama (LCS)
Sefothafotha vs. LMPS (PTC)

Sunday
Bantu vs. Linare (Setsoto stadium)
Lioli vs. Liphakoe (TY)
LDF vs. LCS (LDF).
