LMPS continue impressive run
Resurgent police outfit LMPS appear out of relegation danger following a three-match unbeaten streak, which has put them in ninth position on the 14-team premier league table.
the team had been the bookmakers’ favourites to join the already relegated Qoaling Highlanders in the first division next season, but a remarkable turnaround of fortunes now sees LMPS fighting for a top-eight finish — an incredible revival that was unimaginable last month.
simunye on sunday defeated relegation-threatened Kick4life to continue their revival, with Tefa Mokhoane scoring the only goal of the match and earning his team three priceless points.
Matlama also boosted their chances of finishing among the top-four premiership teams with a 2-1 win over Likila United at LCS ground.
Phafa Tšosane stuck from the penalty spot, with Mabuti Potloane blasting away the other goal to hand Tse Putsoa three points which moved them within two points of fourth-placed army-side, LDF.
there was also a win for nyenye Rovers — another team involved in the relegation dogfight — as they edged the already demoted Highlanders 1-0.
In the other Vodacom Premier League match, Sundawana and FC Likhopo drew 1-1 in ButhaButhe, also on Sunday.
Themba Mzamane scored for the Freeze Ntene-coached Sundawana, while Makara Ntaitsane was the hero for Likhopo.
On the other hand, Mphatlatsane managed to get another point against one of the country’s big guns after holding LCS to a goalless draw.
The previous weekend, Mphatlatsane had ground-out a similar scoreline against log-leaders, Lioli.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, Bantu kept Lioli on their toes with a 2-1 win over LDF with two matches remaining before the curtain rolls down on an exciting season.
Lioli, on the other hand, held on to their three-point advantage at the summit of the premiership table with a 1-0 over Linare.
Junior Maba scored the only goal of the match for Tse Nala, who lead the table with 57 points, with second-placed Bantu on 54.
All the 14 premiership teams are left with two matches and finish their league campaigns next weekend.
