Not yet over for Majantja

Not yet over for Majantja

MASERU – It is not totally doom and gloom for Majantja even if they find themselves in a difficult position: languishing in second last position in the Econet Premier League.
The Mohale’s Hoek club is doing everything they can to avoid relegation this season and they have brought in three coaches which include club legend and former Kaizer Chiefs striker Lekoane Lekoane to come in and help rescue the situation.

The club’s spokesperson, Tšepang Makakule, admits Majantja are now living in hope and are praying their new coaches can salvage their premier league status with five games to go.
It will not be easy for Mohale’s Hoek outfit. They have a difficult run of games coming up beginning with title-chasing Bantu on Friday.
Nevertheless, Makakule said the clash with the champions is the kind of game where players do not need motivation because the occasion on its own is enough incentive.

Makakule acknowledged it is difficult to say how the team can approach their remaining games in order to collect the points they need. However, he insisted Majantja will go into all their games with the belief they can win and that the players have a very positive mind-set at the moment.
“It is very difficult to tell you how we are going to approach the remaining games because we have done everything we could, we have brought in three new coaches and we are hoping they can help us get out of this situation now,” Makakule told thepost.

“It is still possible (to survive relegation) but it is not going to be easy with the remaining games. The morale is high among the players, everybody is positive that we will be able to avoid relegation,” he added.
Makakule said Majantja will be counting on their home fans’ support to make the difference when they entertain Bantu on Friday.
“The game against Bantu is in Mohale’s Hoek, there is no better chance to grab the opportunity and turn the season around for ourselves than this game,” he said.

“If we win the game everybody will be in high spirits and will be motivated for the upcoming matches, so we have to just do our best.”
Majantja lead bottom side Swallows by three points and it appears the Mazenod based side is running out of time to turn things around. At the moment, it looks as if it is just a matter of when not if Swallows will be relegated.

It is worth noting that three teams are in danger of being relegated from the Econet Premier League – Galaxy (in 12th place), Majantja (13th) and Swallows (14th).
Only one of the three will survive the dreaded drop and so far Galaxy have the advantage. The Maputsoe side sit one place above relegation zone.

Majantja’s remaining games:

Friday – Majantja vs. Bantu (H)
27/04 – Majantja vs. Linare (H)
11/05 – Majantja vs. LMPS (A)
18/05 – Majantja vs. LDF (H)
