Kick4life wary of wounded LDF
KICK4LIFE are not going to underrate struggling LDF when the two teams clash at Ratjomose Ground this weekend.
This is according to coach Motlalepula Majoro, who adds the army side remain a good side despite failing to win any of their seven matches of the current season.
“Our approach will be no different from the previous matches we have played. The target is to get three points and nothing else,” Majoro told the Lesotho Times.
“We will not disrespect them because of their struggles so far this season. LDF are a big side with good players and they beat us twice last season so we should never underrate them.”
Majoro says he is happy with the way things have turned out for his youthful side and is confident their top marksman, Thabiso Brown, will soon rediscover his goal-scoring touch. Kick4life have won two, drawn three and lost two of their matches since the 2015/16 premier league season got underway in August and are 6th on the 14-team log with nine points — seven behind pacesetters Lioli.
“I’m very happy with the performance of the team so far, although we are still to play to the best of our ability. We are a young team and I believe the boys will be at their peak two or three years from now.
“My only worry is that our key striker, Tabiso Brown, has been struggling for goals. He has only scored once in seven games. I believe once he rediscovers his goal-scoring touch, our performance is going to improve.”
Meanwhile, Linare will also be in action on Saturday and take on Liphakoe at home.
Tse Tala are mourning two of their players, Lebohang Matamane and Libe Maphothomane, who both passed away last week.
Linare public relations officer, Refiloe Makhobotloane, said his team would honour the match despite the players’ struggle to come to terms with the passing away of their two teammates.
“It’s a sad situation as the other player also passed away at the weekend to make it two deaths at the club following Matamane’s passing away last weekend,” Makhobotloane said.
“We are trying to offer the players all the help we can to make sure they deal with the pain and also focus on the job at hand, although it’s been a difficult time for everyone here at the club.”
In another league match, impressive Rovers can go top of the table with a win over Likila United on Sunday. The match takes place at Machabeng Ground in Roma.
Rovers and Likhopo are jointly third on the premiership table on 14 points and trail logleaders Lioli by two points.
Lioli and Likhopo are not playing this weekend because they have more than two players each in the national team that faces Zimbabwe on Sunday in Bulawayo.
